IN regards to the national press release “patients should pay £10 per appointment for GPs”. In my opinion, it is the people who miss appointments who should pay, if they do not phone in plenty of time to cancel. This is the reason it takes so long to get hospital and dental treatment. Penalise these people, not the ones who keep their appointments and I think queues will shorten.
