Ten-minute consultations 'must go', says NHS England director

Comment

Longer consultations will mean appointments per GP so we will need more GP's whatever (as we will need to also be on the phone keeping out things that don't need to be seen). We are constantly being told about a looming manpower crisis - large numbers of GP's retiring in the next few years but trainee places not increasing. It doesn't add up, it can't happen.
