The GP service nowadays here is an absolute disgrace.On Monday someone I know wanted an appointment for a child and was offered one for the 19th Dec ie 17 days wait.
Doctors get paid whether they work hard or not so there is no incentive to work harder and get the waiting times down. It needs sorting out, because hundreds more houses are being built in Hebburn.
Whenever I've been to the Docs, the place has been nearly empty and the receptionist is answering the phone saying 'we are very busy'.
I think Docs should only be paid when you present something like a NI Debit type card provided by the Government to everyone in the UK That way you can go to whoever provides the best service locally.
