Anonymous 3:47pm - you are not called twice a year for a clinician-centred tick-box exercise, you are called twice a year for a DoH-centred tick-box exercise. Believe me, nothing is more depressing for us than having to sit in a room with a patient asking increasingly irrelevant questions that insults both their and my intelligence. Unfortunately, if this does not happen, the practice does not earn any income and will cease to exist (and don't think it's because we're taking all the profits despite what the Daily Mail tells you (who do you think controls their agenda?)). An excellent article!
