GP leaders to vote on whether to support patient charges for appointments


I would: Vote for a connection between practice income and practice appointments per 1000 patients and each year adjust the recommended number of appointments based on the pay increment (chuckling inside), inflation and expenses. The adjusted number should be made by the BMA (not the government), Any extras forwarded to A+E. If you really want attach a caveat that charging for appointments might be a way to help the situation.
