One third of people pressured to miss or postpone GP appointments


So the problem is that workers do not feel able to take time off work to look after their health and the solution is to make GPs more available 'at a time that suits them (employees)'. Is there any possibility that employers might be encouraged to recognize their part in this by being supportive when staff need time to attend appointments or paying for the private healthcare that will allow appointments at times which suit them?
