All practices in crisis town restrict patient lists over patient safety concerns


The system needs to change. There is no unlimited funding for staff/appointments and there should not be unlimited appointments. The GMC, CCG, NHSE does not take into account you have done your best to help. The system is collapsing as they are punishing clinicians who try to help in a strained system and people are moving to jobs that does not involve seeing patients or abroad. A real sad state of affairs. More MEWS scoring or any scoring card is not going to help except to cause more delays and risk to clinicians registration.
