Headline

One fifth of GP appointments avoidable, finds NHS England audit

Comment

that is not bad given that public have direct access. I am sure similar stats can be found for most jobs. Trouble is , if you see a noctor, for 20 mins, then they can"t manage it, it goes to a GP for 10 mins ie total 30 mins. This is common and cancels out any gains.
