Professor Malcolm Grant’s jibe about GPs being ‘out playing golf’ is just based on the crass ignorance of an individual who clearly has the knowledge and insight of a cow pat. (Commissioning board chair makes GPs “playing golf” jibe)
Playing golf? If only I had time for such recreation. It’s clear that the bureaucrats have no insight as to how pissed off we really are.
Like many other GPs I spend 55 hours minimum clinical contact with patients a week, and a further 20 hours on administrative work.
What more do people want? Phrases like ‘flogging a dead horse’ and ‘getting blood out of a stone’ spring to mind.
