GP practices in England 'open longer than most European equivalents'


Not only are we open longer, our appointments are significantly shorter. 15 mins/consultation is standard in France. 5 -10 is fairly standard here. I wonder if GPs are the ‘go to’ government medical scape-goat in Europe, I suspect not, but we most certainly are here. The UK is a crap place to work as a GP.
