I'm a foster carer and have to have a health review every three years. The GP has to fill in a brief form, by looking at my records and filing in that I have no health issues. Sounds pretty doctory to me. But I got a call after I'd dropped the form off asking for the fee schedule so they could make their charge to social services, that well-known over-funded public service. How petty (sorry, how petty!). Can you imagine if teachers were able to do this? Think of the non-teaching things they could charge for. It seems pretty random for doctors so the 'extras' could be substantial. I wonder how we came to this state of affaris, that one group of publicly funded professionals can charge extra for things which are clearly part of their job, while another, paid a lot less, are likely to be subsidising theirs. I can't believe I've started two threads in one day.
