Personally I think the old GP booking system worked better, it's a nightmare trying to get an appointment nowadays. Let's face it we cannot predict when we are going to feel ill to do a 'pre bookable', and to get an 'on the day' is almost impossible. The GP surgery should still provide 24 hour care for you if you are registered with them, where you could ring the on call at the practice and they would come out. This would surely take some of the strain off the over crowded, over used A&E. Not the 111 malarkey that just doesn't work. Doctor's are very highly trained, highly paid and should be highly respected, it's the system that needs looking into and changing for the best.

Sounds like lots of abusive patients at this surgery. Have they all run out of methadone?

Doctors skipping lunch to do paperwork, we all know that this will most likely lead to a lapse of concentration in the afternoon, not the best thing when your dealing with peoples health.
