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

Comment

Just a suggestion , why not make being a GP more attractive and then you would be able to train and retain more ??? As far as I am aware pharmacist aren't trained to diagnose .No diagnosis = no management plan = high risk = see your Gp . Have any pilot studies been done to see how many sore throats / coughs / rashes / insect bites initially seen by a pharmacist dont consult a GP for the same episode ?? if so would make an intetesting read . if not why are we investing £14 a consult. I would gladly see 1st presentation minor trivia for £84 / hr before the patients have been given unrealistic expectations by someone else.
