How can practices fight unfunded transfer of work?


Thanks Dr G. But having been 'pushing back' - really hard- for the past 3years and sending these standard letters back time and time again, I concur with the writers of the first two comments. There has certainly been no decline in frequency of these breaches. The only notable outcome has been one of further escalating my workload and that of our admin staff. It has increased, not reduced, my frustrations. My secretaries now have a 3-4 week delay to typing routine referrals why we are paying them to do hospital admin work for a much of their working week. It's not only GPs that are been driven out, our secretarial and admin staff are pulling their hair out too.
