A new study shows doctors are seeing a lot more patients than they were two years ago.
It shows that the number of people who see a doctor in their local area increased by 24 per cent from December 2016 to the first quarter of 2017, according to a study by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).
The results are a sign that doctors are beginning to look at the new wave of patients and are more likely to ask more questions than they used to, said Dr Paul Smith, professor of clinical medicine at LSHTM and one of the authors of the study.
The trend is also in stark contrast to the growth in the number and type of procedures performed in London, where surgery has been rising for years, Smith said.
“If you want to treat the condition, you have to have some kind of surgery.”
If it’s just a hip or knee replacement, you can have a hip and knee replacement.
“There’s a whole set of surgeries and treatments that we’ve seen that are not as widely used.”
The researchers also found that the average number of appointments per day for doctors in their area had increased by more than 10 per cent.
In the UK, the average is currently between 10 and 15 per day.
The new research was carried out by the UK’s national health service (NHS), which has recently begun publishing results from its National Survey of Practice.
The NHS has reported an increase in the average time it takes for doctors to treat a patient from an average of 4.3 hours in the first half of 2017 to 5.4 hours in May 2017, the last months for which data are available.
The NHS said the data was used to create a baseline for future analysis, and said more data was expected in the coming months.
The number of surgeries performed per day is still well below its peak in 2014 and 2015, and has been declining steadily for the past few years.
However, in recent years, the number has continued to increase, as more patients seek to have operations done at home.
This year, the NHS has recorded a total of more than 2.2 million procedures.
