Conservatives asked to consider an annual limit on GP appointments per patient


I am not sure who feeds the Government with this idiotic notion of limiting patients visits to GP. Patients need to be penalised for DNAs who have not informed GP of cancellation of their appointments. Hospitals need to levy similar fee and a higher fee if patient DNA for any surgical procedure. I am sure a small charge for say paracetamol prescription would not be out if place.
