Matt Hancock has pledged to improve access to GPs after family doctors complained they were being overwhelmed.
Doctors say they have been set an 'undoable' task by ministers, with pent-up demand from the pandemic creating a 'tsunami' of patients.
The numbers visiting GPs increased by 20 per cent last month, according to analysis of NHS England figures by the Health Foundation.
Wait, despite this 'deadly pandemic' the population has increased by 20%..? Really?
In the first year of the pandemic, 31million fewer GP appointments were carried out than normal...
No, didn't think so! It's just the system reverting to normal, and the lazy bastards having to go back to working for a living!
...as patients put off seeing doctors over fears of catching Covid or burdening the NHS.
I'm pretty sure the majority of them didn't have a choice, as GPs closed up faster than speakeasy owners in 20s Chicago when Elliot Ness and his men hove into view...
