What GPs need to log for Pulse’s workload survey


Duty day today so 74 phone assessments, 32 face to face assessments, over 60 tasks, over 105 pathology results, 10 letters to action, endless paper scripts to sign alongside over 100 on eps, other paper hospital prescription requests, queries from DNs, an extra hours worth of stuff from the office to sort through. If the paramedic attached to the surgery hadn't been able to do the home visits I would have been finishing after 10pn tonight having only left the surgery around 9pm and having started at 7:30am with no lunch and no break all day. There you go there's your survey answers for the majority of us I suspect!
