We must fight - and the time is now


One idea is one which I believe is still in the regulations. Demand to see a patient's Medical Card before any appointment or treatment is offered. Failure to show this will allow us to charge the patient and give a receipt which, in times of yore, would have been reimbursed by the Family Practitioners Authority (remember??) and deducted from our emoluments. Imagine what fun the bureaucrats would have in sorting that out!!!
