Should GPs be paid per consultation?


I think GPs should be paid for offering appointments outside of core hours, and this payment should come from the patient. If you rather have convenience then pay for it (pts can then decide if it makes financial sense to pay for an evening/weekend appointment or take time of work) This increases pts choice, promotes responsibility as the pt is paying and also incentives GPs to open later.
