Need to consider red flag symptoms There is a lab in london which is offering 10min consultation for £30 for the Pharmacist to prescribe medication What would happen if you didn't agree with the NT How to make a diagnosis in a short appointment This could be a lead generation for the practice seeing patients for shorter appointments and also for NT to refer to use the GP side of the service.
