On the subject of GP's; the Govt. are getting in a lather over the fact that A&E attendance has gone up by 36% in the last few years.
Have they considered that this rise corresponds with a similar rise in the time it takes to get an appointment with your GP.
" You'd like an urgent appointment, what's the problem?"
"Blood gushing from a wound in your leg"
"Looking at the diary, the Doctor can see you in...three weeks time. Is that OK?"
I found this for the short time I lived in the city, but now I live in the country the GP surgery in the next village is easy to get an appointment with instantly and if you want to see your own GP a couple of days, it's great
About hospitals, after the 7/7 bombs the A&E patients waiting were told of the situation and asked if they thought they could be seen at there GP's could they leave, practically everyone left, which suggests that most people attending A&E really need not be there.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
