'Uber-style' private GP appointment service primed for national rollout

Comment

Gosh, lots of people get hot under the collar when a service is set up for GPs to provide a service to patients willing to pay for it. Haven't consultants been offering a similar service for years? Hardly controversial stuff especially when the fee is cheaper than the cost of calling out a plumber. Shades of Great British Bake Off hysteria.
