A simple answer would be for people to just act in a responsible manner, in the interests of the people who ultimately pay their wages, or for the regulators, that those same people also pay, to do what they're paid for - rather than strut their pomposity from the safety of their legally-enforceable closed shop.Is the answer Health Centres as opposed to GPs' surgeries?
Gnosall Pharmacy doesn't open at the weekend. I found this out when I once didn't wait for prescription. Never made that mistake again.
The principle of the NHS is excellent and many parts of the NHS are excellent but the GP system is totally, utterly crap and will always be so until someone his them in the wallet and forces them to offer customer service. Much like the Outpatient system as well actually.
I can't find definitive proof, but references to the chip shop generally spell it Groucott, whereas Grocott seems to be the Penkridge doctor's form.
Oh, do you realise who the MP is for those of us who live on the western outskirts of the borough?!Not having them be for-profit businesses would help.
However it does sound like this is a rather exceptional case even for GPs. Not allowing an alternative pharmacy must be against “the rules” surely? I’d be on to your MP (haha... at least you’re not in Stafford), local Trust, etc as it sounds like they’re taking the piss
Oh, I think you'll find he's not been shy helping himself.Never heard of anyone who has been helped in any way by Sir Bill.
No, David Blanchard ran the Dunston Beer Festival for six years until 2000.Was Tony Grocott the person who ran the Dunston Beer Festivals.
Penkridge Medical Practice partners are currently Dr Anthony Grocott, Dr Gopal Annadanam, Dr Sheena Gibson & Dr Joanna Baldock (probably in order of seniority) plus 3 salaried GPs
