Thank you one and all who responded to my whinge about length of GP consultations. I see that some of us are pretty lucky with their GP's generous laissez faire attitude to appointment disciplines.
Just as a footnote: I received the Practice Newsletter today. Somebody must have raised a similar point with the management and they responded by saying, wait for it......the reason that you have to wait past your appointment time is because some patients raise questions about MORE THAN ONE CONDITION. The response goes on to chide patients who should "PRIORITISE" WHICH OF THE CONDITIONS IS MOST URGENT!!!! - (and presumably keep stum about anything else?)
You couldn't make it up could you?
