It appears to be a post code lottery. I (in Hampshire) tried to book to see my named GP the other day to be told there were no appointments for 6 weeks and not taking bookings further ahead. If urgent you have to try to get through on the phone from 8 am, and for same day you are directed to a medical centre manned by GP from 4 local practices. Contrast that with a friend in Edinburgh who, on coming out of Hospital after a broken hip, had their G P visit, arrange physio and phone follow up.. They even have a walk in surgery where you can wait to see a GP. When I came out of Hospital after a replacement hip last year I heard nothing from my GP and certainly no physio.
