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


I doubt GPs have become 100% worse since 2007, we are just being crushed under the weight of remorseless demand. What this report really means is the current NHS is not fit for purpose. Patients are no longer dumb pawns to be pushed round the system but consumers who's desires must be met. It's time the government released doctors from the NHS straight-jacket and allowed co-payments so people can actually get what they want rather than be fobbed off in a 10 minute GP consultation.
