LET GP’S MANAGE THEIR OWN SURGERY
Being in the unfortunate postition of seeing my GP on a regular basis, over the last five years it has become harder and harder to find an appointment, due to targets, regulations and constraints the previous government demanded.
Political interference in health matters have become the 'norm'. GP Surgeries have been tied up with so much red tape they are unable to function as a surgery should – to be there for the patient!
Let the GP's manage their own surgeries without the constraints imposed on them by government, which is causing significant distress to those who need to see a doctor. The situation is now so bad that in effect you have to 'book an illness' in advance to see your own GP!
If it's not broken – don't fix it, the previous Labour government have 'fixed' so many ordinary services to make them more efficient!!!!! No wonder we are in the mess we are in!
Why does this idea matter?
It is very important to have a surgery where you don't have to fight, shout or plead for an appointment. The doctors are unable to utilise their surgery appointments and times because they are so wrapped up in red tape, they cannot fundtion effectively.
I used to be able to ring and an appointment was made at the earliest time.
