Headline

Prominent MP criticises ‘frustrating and ineffective’ GP appointment systems

Comment

Dear Mr Smith, Perhaps you should check the facts against your perceptions. The latest stats taken directly from GP appointment systems before any refinements that informaticians such as I would apply show your comments to be untrue. In addition the very widespread research on A/E attendance rate has shown on many occasions to not be related to access to GP appointments but to football matches and national soap programming as well as annual event film schedules. In short - get your facts straight before you release them to the media. Shame on you Pulse for promulgating such nonsense. Regards Paul C
