GPs must offer more choice for outpatient referrals, Monitor says


I have ten minutes a patient. By the time I have established the patient needs a referral there are no more minutes left, to have a protracted conversation about the merits of different hospitals. Also, as a GP I do not know the details of opd waits or mrsa results etc for each hospital . I do not have anymore time to look them up. Time is inelastic. Which bit of ' GPs are overworked ' do they not understand ?
