GP winter access to be audited using 'third next available appointment'

Comment

I must admit that I was a bit shocked to be told that I had to wait three weeks for an appointment to get a referral for my BCC removal. I asked the receptionist to check that was right with the GP. Obviously I didn't want an emergency appointment but neither do I want to walk around with a BCC longer than is necessary. Is this sort of wait the norm now? (I am retired from General Practice but that would not have been the case in my time as a GP).
