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

Comment

I find this really annoying. We run an open access service to our patients - busy but patients love it. On a Monday I can see about 45 patients - at 15 mins each - that is nearly 11 hours of surgery alone in the day!!! Some patients simply need a sick note (you might argue it will give you time to discuss issues) or a virus or a pill check (should be nurses!)
