Does anyone know why Doctors "on call" have a personal driver? Probably a good reason, maybe someone can advise. Otherwise, savings to be made?

Really, why? I don't mean those who attend emergencies with blue lights, I mean the GPs who come out at night and weekends. My Gas Fitter doesn't have a personal driver.

Your gas fitter doesn't have to think much - it's all on his computer. Most of them couldn't fit a French letter. British Gas that is - the independents are salt of the earth. Also Dr.s don't need to waste time finding parking spaces. So it's about time, the Dr's thinking/diagnosing time etc.

My point - I think it is an extravagance and an opportunity for cost saving. My GP drives himself to his practice and presumably drives himself to the shops etc in his leisure time. Yet, when he is on-call, he has a personal driver. Is it really necessary? Can it be justified?
No other reason but if everyone thinks it is money well spent, then so be it.

No offence to GP's, but they don't have to think much either...
For every illness or ailment, they "have a mate who specialises in it", I could literally do their job: "Sorry I don't know, but let me refer you to a real doctor".
No of course they don't need a personal driver, I'm going to have to Google it as I don't believe they have one.

Tim - Doctor when mobile are writing notes emailing etc. If they had no driver they would see less patients. Obvious really....

I expect it's so they can check on their pension pots in-between calls. And count down to retirement. Beats working for a living. Lazy b@stards with their three week Christmas break. They should be made to help in hospitals. I mean has anyone actually managed to get a doctor out 'on call'. I doubt it.

I thought they had a card that clearly said "Doctor on Call" for the windscreen. Mind you, with the parking situation in Lewes and the neo-parking police who would ticket it anyway regardles, in case it was a scammer.

What's the point of sending a doctor that can't drive out on call?
