GPs should be paid per 1,000 consultations, says Gerada

Comment

A good method of recognising workload, but there has to be some recognition for time spent as well as raw numbers. A system based on raw consultation numbers would even more favour your area 1 only , 1 problem per consultation doctor. As a patient, I want to deal with all my problems at once. I hope for enough time to answer my concerns and to understand the logic behind treatments recommended for me. This will improve my compliance and allow me to make the best health decisions. I like to do this for my patients too.-- Now: what about hourly pay for GPs - what an innovation?
