Letters, calls & emails: Unfair to link diverse views to ourincome

Dear Editor

I usually manage to read your regular column entitled 'Practice Dilemma' where the views of a GP, a medico-legal adviser and a member of the Patient Partnership Group (PPG) are compared on a topical dilemma.

I have recently been very impressed and reassured by the member from the PPG, Trevor Seemann, whose contributions seem very reasonable. This is in stark contrast to my feelings about other contributors from that group whose views I have felt to be completely unrealistic.

It reminded me of new GMS and specifically of the income-linked survey of patients views regarding our services.

It would be very interesting to see how different the answers to the same dilemma might be from different members of the PPG.

If, as I suspect, the answers present a diverse picture, what hope then for a 'fair' (income- linked) result from surveying our patients?
