Headline

GP appointment waiting times 'risk to patient safety', warns RCGP

Comment

"an appointment" - what exactly is this blanket term Helen? acute, review at the time they WANT and only with the GP they WANT? Just to get in the door? For a procedure? To get a call (that is an appointment in my mind and we offer on the day calls to anyone who wants them and patients still complain they can't speak to who they want when they want now!) This simply makes more fuel for the fire and does nothing to support your colleagues. Thank you. Remind me why anyone would waste their money on the RCGP?
