"If the practice can't deal with the existing patients, then why are they advertising for more?"

About: NHS Southwark CCG

(as the patient),

I tried to make an appointment today to see a doctor and was told I will have to wait nearly 3 weeks. Meanwhile there's a huge banner outside the premises asking for new patients to register. If the clinic can't deal with its existing lists, why is it advertising for more?

I didn't bother to make an appointment. Perhaps the sudden deafness in my right ear will clear up by itself.
