I was happy to see and sign this petition as let’s face it we are not talking about a couple of surgeries that this is happening at, it’s all over Britain. People are dying because they are not being diagnosed early enough. Every other service is almost back to normal, these doctors are not gods so just go back to work and stop being paid for sitting at home making a few phone calls. Yes, we know they are busy and there are not enough doctors but they all managed before. Let us free up A&E from non-urgent visits so they can get on with seeing the actual emergencies and the huge backlog of patients on waiting lists.
Maybe the government should encourage people to study for these jobs and put the pay up to an acceptable level as then we may get more staff for the NHS.
They spent all that money on the nightingale centres but never had enough staff to run them!
No point in building state of the ark surgeries if not enough doctors to run them!
Why pay for a locum to sit in the hospitals seeing patients when the local doctors should be seeing them!
