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

Comment

Why should patients learn how to self manage minor ailments when they can pop into their GP surgery and see a GP for a free checkup, free prescription and free refills? Ever wonder why patients are discharged from hospital or sent out from outpatients with a hospital prescription but do not fill their prescription in the hospital pharmacy (as they would have to self pay) but instead take it to see their GP to exchange for an FP10 to get meds for free?
