Pressures force GP practices to halt routine appointment bookings

Comment

Yes and patients are increasingly coming in pissed off. Believe me it doesn’t make the few consultations there are available any easier. 3 minutes of a ten minute consultation listing to someone rant about how difficult it was to get their appointment seems pretty routine these days, bringing with it a perceived entitlement to discus 7 problems, and stay with you for 25 minutes - screw everybody else in the waiting room 30% of whom will probably come in with the same attitude, more and more likly the later your clinic runs
