New contract set to end 10-minute GP consultations, say GP leaders


What does it mean by 10 min consults anyway? I know most gp clinics start the day with say 15x10 min slots per clinic. But it's not like a bell goes off after 10 mins and the patient leaves. And what happens when slots are filled and the demand keeps coming? Do you take the view of some practices and see dozens of extras, or just say your appointments are filled? Neither is ideal.
