A Visit To The London Mithraeum

These pictures show my visit to the London Mithraeum, which is hidden under the Bloomberg Building.

It is definitely worth a visit. And it’s free!

It gets a high rating on Trip Advisor.

Most people book, but I just turned up early on a Tuesday morning and walked right in!

I suspect that won’t be possible for long, as it will get busy!

Especially, when the new entrance to the Drain opens nearby in the New Year. Apparently, it’s rumoured to be running late on opening because of water leaks.

Increasing GP Service Capacity

Yesterday, I phoned my GP at 14:00 and saw him at 16:00, as I was allocated a cancellation.

This article on the BBC is entitled One In Five Patients Regularly Misses GP Appointments. This is said.

Up to one in five patients is regularly missing GP appointments in Scotland, new research reveals.

A study of more than 500,000 people in the country found poorer patients living in affluent areas were the most likely to miss an appointment.

My GP Surgery is in a mixed area, but it does have a comprehensive text message system, so you can cancel appointments.

Surely, if any percentage of the missed appointments could be cancelled and reallocated, this would increase the capacity of the GP service.
