GPs have ‘chosen’ 10-minute consultations, claims NHS England lead

Comment

Most practices I have worked in, including my own when it was open, run a 10min basic appointment with an extended 20 min appointment if requested by patient or thought needed. If patient takes 5 mins then bonus. Just love it when Ivory Towers merchants tell us the way to do it when they would wet their britches if put in the pressure cooker environment that it NHS General Practice nowadays.
