Two-thirds of patients willing to pay fine for missing a GP appointment


One report suggests there are over 60,000 GP appointments missed every day which if true represents a potential £156m per year additional funding for primary care. That's not really a bad return is Dr Baker??? I'm sure CAPITA could manage it centrally for less than £1m per year.
