It is not up to GPs to decide which patients are ‘deserving’ or ‘undeserving’


How about this for a solution? Develop a nationally agreed template report for DWP (and funded by DWP), giving an appropriate summary of patient's medical history. Embed it into the GP clinical system, so admin staff can run off a copy when requested, much like insurance PMA's.
