GPs say they are misdiagnosing patients because appointment slots are too short. A survey of family doctors found more than one in three said they had failed to properly diagnose cases because they did not have enough time to fully assess them. Typically, the time slot to see a patient is around 10 minutes. The poll of 200 GPs found that 95 per cent of those surveyed said such slots were too short to do their jobs safely.
