GPs may have to assess mental health and mental capacity free of charge


I think most GPs will agree they all feel rather vulnerable these days. Hit from all angles. Complaints, income going down, pension, Gross Negligence Manslaughter, CQC, GMC, NHSE, CCG, QoF, legal obligations, GDPR, PCNs, deprivation of liberty acts etc. We become doctors to treat disease, we are not social workers or lawyers. I wonder who would want to work in the UK these days.
