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

Comment

I'm sorry, which planet is Dr Beswick on? You cannot train the practice staff to triage appropriate and inappropriate attendances. If you could, NHS111 would have worked. You can train clinicians to do it - there are system such as Doctor First but as any caller all get clinical contract, strictly speaking it's not reducing burden of work for practice. As pointed out longer appointment is a pie in the sky without funding and work force to go with it. Can we please have a realist at the helm and less of ideologist please.....
