Interestingly everyone is wearing a mask, I wonder if that is because of the 38,000 plus cases of Covid a week that are still occurring. Maybe this is an example of what the Tories mean by Leveling Up the country?

I had a drs appointment last week while sat at my desk at work rather than taking a morning off and travelling across Rotherham and Sheffield patients need to be re educated if a dr can see more patients a day we should go with it you can still get nurse appointments for tests and treatment it’s just about working smarter

The people I know who work in public healthcare all go far above and beyond what they should be doing. This is all part of a long term plan to turn us against the NHS, so they can take the next steps to privatisation. If he wants to help, hire the GP’s he promised in the last election

Who should we trust doctors and nurses or politicians and journalists

Seeing a doctor in person is more than difficult and this will not change it is the new normal. I live beside a doctor surgery and the patient car park is all but empty. Before Covid it was always full.

This is an attempt to pitch the public against doctors and so the process of destroying the NHS advances.

Doctors know more about managing doctor's time than politicians.

Patients need more choice. If they want telephone appointment then fair enough but if they want to see professionals face to face then they should also should have that choice instead of just been told to just see gp's over the phone.
