"Getting a form signed"

I am a healthy middle aged male who enjoys fitness and sport.
I wanted a medical form signed at short notice (it was a duplicate of one already in existence but too far away to be immediately to hand).
When I asked the GP practice to get the form signed the doctor refused saying to begin with that I need a specialist doctor. When I pointed out that the form stated specifically that no specialisation was required she said that she did not have time to sign forms at such short notice.
What we have here I think is a doctor, being paid I imagine around £80, 000 per annum, who needs notice to sign a form!
Does anybody else think it about time GP's took a fleeting visit to the real world?
