Prominent MP criticises ‘frustrating and ineffective’ GP appointment systems


There is a very obvious answer which is in widespread use. Open access just turn up and wait surgeries for acute problems. Watch your patient satisfaction results shoot up, save lots of money spent on paying re eptionists to say no. Know that your patients acute problems can be treated promptly and sleep well at night. We used to do this in my former practice but had to stop it on the orders of the NHS area team!
