GPs asked to prescribe drugs and chase test results for secondary care inpatients


I remember being asked to do preop examination including blood tests and ecg. I telephoned and spoke to sister in charge and asked how would they fund my time . She said the hospital is far away for patients to keep coming. I said patient requested referral to you so how he travels is not my problem. I did not hear from them again
