GP Online released an article that can be found here. The article discusses how the government are paying out for benefits when patients could be send back to work sooner.
GP’s may be given the power to send patients back to work with a new form. They could also be paid for this decision, amongst the already staggering amount of work and issues they face.
Therefore, would this decision be a wise one?
Or would it just call more problems?
Here at Primary Care Professionals, we understand fully the pressure, and demands of GP working life. Therefore we wanted to question, and ask you all; would this decision lift a load? Or add to the already existing pressures?
Please let us know your thoughts!
