#News

Our splash and analysis is about CCGs denying GPs direct access to cancer scans despite a government pledge.

GP joined forces with the Macular Society (@MacularSociety) to survey GPs on Charles Bonnet syndrome.

#Opinion

RCGP chairwoman Dr Maureen Baker (@maureenrcgp) writes about improving patients' online access to their records, booking appointments and repeat prescriptions.
