Three-week wait to see a GP

UK Two million people may be waiting for up to three weeks to see their GP as surgeries start to buckle under the strain of an ageing population, a survey has found. Only one in three patients said they could get a same-day appointment with a doctor and an estimated half a million people cannot see their family doctor for up to a month. The research, published in the Daily Mail found that 20% of people wait a week for a consultation.
