Hunt has 'no problem' with charging for missed GP appointments


That still doesnot solve problem of excessive demand. Main problem is booking unnecessary appointments. By charging for appointments we will simply make every patient turn up for their appointment. If Government really wants patients to take up responsibility for their health then they should consider charging reasonable amount for every appointment.
