GPs told to refrain from referring as hospital declares early-season black alert


BigAndSmall, I do believe you are today's Winner of the Internets :-) We regularly get emails saying that the local hospitals are full and could we please avoid sending patients in unless it's really necessary. Quite right, too. Everyone knows that GPs have so much time on our hands that we go trawling round our patients' houses looking for people to send to hospital just for our own entertainment, and that patients like the hospital experience so much that they pester us to admit them even when they're not ill.
