GP leaders brand immigration officers' request for patient address 'appalling'


GPs are supermen and women. Not only do we interfere in domestic affairs acting like counsellors and social workers, we act as bodyguards in child protection, we are good company for loneliness in the elderly and check out their loose carpets and leaky pipes as health and safety officers, we can also deliver medication and act as personal shoppers, doing parenting for some parents who cannot be bothered and now a new role as border guards. In short, doing everything else except what we are meant to do. Treating diseases and being a doctor.
