GPs asked to refer patients to food banks

Comment

For the past 3 Christmases, I have used my Nectar & Clubcard points to buy stuffs to donate to foodbanks. I have never been an official volunteer, but have occasionally spoken to people queuing for a parcel. Many of them work 2-3 jobs, I can see how hard it was for them to have to ask for vouchers. I'm appalled at the 'scrounger' label mentality of some GPs.
