Having to talk to receptionists about symptoms puts people off seeing GP


Listening to the arguments on BBC news just now , nobody seems to have touched the core : this phenomenon is simply one of the manifestations of the current crisis in general practice , which is exactly fundamental to why we are fighting against the government(s) up to now. Wanting to stretch the resources even thinner exactly results in this kind of 'triage for overcompensation' at all levels , GP reception is only one of them.
