Doctors vote on making patients pay for appointments. Do you agree with this idea?

I am not knocking any Doctors credentials but the day patients have to pay for appointments is the day that Doctors diagnose us properly and give patients anything other than a paracetamol. Doctors are voting for this because they believe it will stop patients missing appointments, well if that is the case why not charge the patients that have missed appointments probably makes sense. Most doctors are unqualified and know very little about the human body so if we are going to pay for something, then they must go back and study some more. Essentially the elderly, people on benefits they may suffer if this is applied to them.

I agree with you at all and if they really want to stop the missed appointments they have to charge you if you really miss it. That is only another way to make money.

It's revenue. Granted, the NHS has enormous problems and shortfalls. Saying though that the charge is due to people missing appointments is so obviously a lame excuse. And this is what upsets people, as much as the charge. One of the biggest things GPs need is trust. How will they get that if they will not even talk straight?
