Half of GPs in favour of charging for routine appointments


I believe in charging- anything that is free has no value. I have seen patients that attend every week- usual complaints- rash of 1 hr duration/cough of 1 hour duration, runny nose of 1 hour duration. They comes to the reception first thing in the morning make a different complaint so they are seen as urgent - only to discover their condition are relatively minor and could be managed at home.
