New 'fit for work' scheme to assess patients by telephone


Here's the rub........job centres send people to the GP at any hint of something, so they can have patient signed off, and reduce their stats! Most times, I'm saying to patients, well, yes, you do have a diagnosis of depression, but it is treated and does not mean you are incapable of some form of work!
