LMCs could face legal action over template letters for GPs to refuse benefit requests from patients

Comment

having read all points how can a GP assess the housing needs of the patients without making a visit-this is the remit of the council and the council O/T-money or no money-the letters the GPs give in support are any way weight less-so we need an integrated system where some one from the council should physically go and assess-we are quite happy to give our opinion-actually the law should make it mandatory for the councils to accept our verdict as legal verdicts and then it will work-that's my view
