GP leaders to debate seven-day services and charging overseas patients today


Payment per consultation, with a consultation fee of 10 pounds per 10min patient consult will make all the lazy UK GP go to work on every day of the year. GPs should be allowed to charge extra if they wish to and the extra - and only if patients think that a particular GP is worth paying for they will pay such GPs. This will be the panacea for all problems relating to access and ensuring that no GPs would abuse the current system where some work less but get paid more even though they are clinically crap.
