Baker: Patients may think service cuts are sign that GPs want an easy life


We offer a lot of external services in our building such as counselling, physiotherapy, GPSI clinics and visiting consultants outpatient clinics. They provide an excellent service for out rural patients. We do however often get judged by their service. Mostly good and patient often say it is a good practice because it offers those services, but sometimes the problems reflect badly on us. Simple complaints are easy to deflect in the correct direction, but local gossip is a powerful tool.
