At 4.20pm today I phoned our GP's surgery to make an appointment for Steven. The receptionist said "well we can see him at 4.30pm if you can get here"
And this is a very busy practise will full books that has just lost one of its senior doctors.
So not all surgeries are as bad as the tabloids make out.
Oh and by the way I couldn't take the appt - just a bit too short notice.
