CQC reviewing practices' 'risk ratings' data as inaccuracies emerge


GPC, it is high time to ditch the current Contract, to move to a 15 minute at least , 25 appointments a day system, for our safety and for patients. The current system of list size puts impossible demands on us with no time for patients and all sorts of criticism for poor care and patients waiting for weeks for appointments, which is wrong and not their fault; in spite of us seeing 40 + patients a day. We have to define safety in numbers seen. At the moment, we cannot close list size in spite of impossible workloads and then we are judged as being poor providers. GPC, the whole edifice is crumbling on your watch. It appears to us that you are hand in league with the Govt. Otherwise, you would have done something by now.
