Headline

Break-down in patient communication behind a third of allegations about GPs, show GMC figures

Comment

"GPs may therefore need more support, guidance or resources to ensure that their engagement with patients is appropriate.’" --- How about GPs need more time to deal with the increasingly consumer led patient agenda? How about accepting that trying to deal with 5 or 6 problems in TEN minutes unsurprisingly leads to complaints. Isn't it time to recognise that the current system of an £80 per year all you can consume healthcare buffet is not sustainable. It's time for patients to have ultimate control over who they want to see with payment at the point of delivery based on a fee for service model.
