GPs should prescribe gardening to patients, finds report


disappointment once again, the proposal doesn't go far enough. GP is ideally placed to prescribe and monitor gardening , cleaning, cooking, shopping and lots of other complex human activities that might go astray without professional input. Think about it- someone may make some error any minute!!! We must be close enough to support ...everyone and everywhere. I've had enough of doing pointless surgeries, the only good this sort of activity does is to maybe identify few ill people. Shut your practices and go and join your patients in their natural habitat. Because, as any politician or f-ing cqc droid will tell you, they are worth it.
