GP Bashing

After having read the Department of Health's 2007 GP patient survey (about which we posted here), in which 84% of patients were satisfied with GP opening hours, I was somewhat surprised to see the BBC post this report on Wednesday about GP out of hours services and follow it up with a Have Your Say readers' comments stream. It seems comments are limited to the 16% who are not satisfied.

And I am amazed at the implicit racism of many of the comments about, presumably foreign (or is it just their skin colour?), doctors' English skills in what is supposedly a moderated feature.

Dr Rant is understandably angry. And the reasons why are explained a little more calmly here.
