Consultant-to-consultant referrals ban piles pressure on GP practices and delays treatment

Comment

Think about it: Our (GP's) referrals are being vetted by referral management (RM) and consultants' referrals being vetted by us( which in reality can be vetted further by RM) Seriously? What kind stupid culture have they created? Value for money? REALLY?? The bottom line is they want to only allow 'fixed' ,lower amount of referrals to go through every month because of money . Of course , the bureaucrats and politicians have no guts to say that to the public.
