'Sharing the load' seems to mean dumping work on GPs

Comment

It is this sort of attitude that has partly got us into this mess. One of our hospitals is now insisting for 2 week wait referrals we email a referral letter AND fill in a pro forma form which does nothing more than duplicate work and hence increase work. I have steadfastly refused and had some heated discussions with hospital managers but guess what... all other GPs have 'agreed' to it. Keep self flagellating.
