Top GP issues mental health warning as 400 doctors die by suicide


Patient seen 2 days earlier writes to the MP - 'I called the Surgery 67 times today and could not get an appointment. I want an explanation'. records show, she was seen on a same day appointment next morning again with no problem. However, the zealous MP who has to show she is doing something has written a lengthy leter asking for a stupid explanation and elaboration of how my appointment system works. My answer should be p** off as I have no time, but no - I will sit down and waste patient time by blocking 5 patient visits tomorrow to answer her so another 5 patients can have a reason to complain - and the cartwheel goes round and round. When you have imbecile and infantile politicians who don't tell the patient to first raise concerns with the Surgery, this is what you get.
