A GP in Monaghan has sparked a big reaction online after a recent post on their Facebook page -
‘New Surgery Policy - One Problem Per Consultation policy
One appointment = one patient + one problem
We kindly ask that all patients try and stick to our ‘One Problem Per Consultation’ policy. The main reason for this request is for Patient Safety.
We know that getting an appointment with the doctor is sometimes difficult and that some patients ‘save’ their problems and present them to the doctor at the same time, with or without a list. We also know that the doctor may run late. All of this increases the tendency for patients to present multiple problems to their doctor at one consultation.
What do you make of this?
