Two-week wait for GP appointments to become the norm in many practices 'within a year'


It's the demographic that's killing us . Demand fuelled by glory hunting politicians is making things worse . If the resources are cut from 11- to 8% of NHS budget then system failure is inevitable . More Gp's are required to maintain the level of access let alone increase it. Extra funding will suddenly be available when Branson swoops down to pick over the pieces. This is all part of the softening up process to privatisation.
