Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Face-to-face GP appointments at highest level since BEFORE Covid”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Just one in eight GP appointments are carried out face-to-face at England's worst-performing practices, official figures revealed today.

The Government's first ever 'league table', designed to 'name and shame' surgeries into seeing more patients in-person, shows 12 per cent of consultations were in-person in October at some practices across London.

Practice-by-practice data, which ministers claim will help patients make 'more informed choices' about where they choose to be treated, also suggested that some surgeries provided no same-day appointments for poorly patients.

Meanwhile, no patients saw a GP at one practice, with appointments carried out by nurses and other practice staff instead.
