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

Comment

Hardly news - no one else can be bothered to do it - oh I know let's dump it on GPs and make them drown in this too. Also, anyone else want to bet this isn't a core service covered medicolegally by the government's so called indemnity scheme if someone tries to disagree with any decisions made for this by a GP and a complaint about it gets made against us?! Have to say the billing of this would be my last concern and more a concern with the above!
