Dear patient, the whole problem is the ten minute consultation


Very eloquently written. Thank you for putting into words what most of us, I suspect, are thinking when we hear the words "there's a few things", sometimes followed by the justification of "I don't come in very often" when we explain it isn't safe to deal with multiple problems in a single consultation. I think the RCGP should use this in a campaign to inform patients, but I'm certain they wouldn't have the nerve to say anything as sensible as this.
