GP consultation rate for flu increases by 42% in a week


‘’There were also 598 hospitalised confirmed influenza cases, not requiring intensive care, compared with 758 the previous week.‘’ 758-598 / 758 X100%= 21% reduction If I wanted to ‘spin’ for GPs , I would say this ‘success’ was down to twice this amount by hard work from GPs in increasing consultation rate 42%. But the truth is the government had taken us for granted.
