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


Yes - and that's why we get dental problems coming through to primary care from time to time. I often decline to treat this but still, it shows the dynamics between money and access. I think Germany had a trial a few years ago of introducing 10EUR surcharge for primary care appointments. I understand it didn't curve the demand and increased demand else where in the system so it has now stopped.
