GPs asked to refer patients to food banks

Comment

"Please remember the people who ask for help put food on all of our tables" --- Sure, there are lots of people who are in unfortunate positions that deserve better and should be remembered at Christmas if not all of the time. I'm still yet to see anyone post a good reason at to why this group of people need to be seen by an already heavily overstretched GP service for no apparent medical reason before being given food by an external body.
