UK doctor leaders back calls for workload cap 'to protect sanity of GPs'


25 a day is unreasonably low. Let's be honest - not all our consultations are long and complicated, and they are balanced out by the 'quickies'. We must not turn away ill patients just because our quota for the day is full - that is morally indefensible. There are many other ways of reducing workload which I would readily support e.g. scrapping unnecessary bureaucracy.
