  • Disappointed it does not go far enough.
    Hospital Doctors are breaching DWP guidelines and GMC criteria of an unacceptable doctor, and no-one is doing anything about it, but GPs are given extra work in both doing the Med3s and taking responsibility when the higher-paid hospital doctors negilgently do not, and GPs are now expected to ALSO write a letter every time to the hospital doctor!
    what a wste of GP effort-we know already that the consultants don't give a care at all for patient convenience, truth, or GP workload!
