Same-day pharmacy appointments could help tackle GP pressures, says RCGP

Comment

All these schemes do is reinforce the belief that expert help is needed for all sorts of trivia. Pharmacists love them because they get to flog a bottle of expensive but useless woo which doesn't help, and the punter then ends up with the GP a day or two later. That the RCGP has no idea what happens in the World the rest of us inhabit is, of course, no suprise whatsoever.
