GPs to be protected from secondary care workload dump


I had to do a sick note on a NHS patient who had just had a CABG where the hospital team discharged him on the Friday, told him not to work for 6 weeks (and wrote this in the discharge report) but only signed him off work until the Monday and told him to see me for a further sick note. It will take years for this attitude towards general practice to change. This madness has to stop.
