Swine flu sick note requests overwhelm GPs30th July 2009
Local Medical Committees say that GPs are facing a deluge of demands for sick notes by patients who have swine flu.
Chris Locke, secretary of Nottinghamshire LMC, said: "Since the flu-line has opened, we’re grateful it has taken the pressure off GPs. But there seems to be no end for the demand for sick-notes. Their phones are full-up with people asking for sick-notes. There is obviously a real problem, particularly if the GP hadn’t seen them at all."
