Average waiting time for GP appointment increases 30% in a year


The lack of resources in primary care is unprecedented. I am writing this from a day case unit in hospital. I have been seen by two anaesthetists two nurses an ODA and two surgeons. There are staff everywhere. I used to work as a GP in Canada. I had three consultation rooms and a nurse that took a history from patients before I went in to consult patients. There were separate staff that looked after taking money from patients and billing. Compare that to UK General Practice.
