Sorry but I'm not clear about your exact question here?

my boyfriends doctor is not willing to see him as the last patient in the surgery and will only give him a appointment at busy time as my boyfriend does not want to spread the virus, the surgery is unwilling to see him as a last patient and he needs to be seen in order to get a diagnosis of measles, should the gp surgery take this more seriously

Well, I agree that it would be best to see him as the last patient but since your boyfriend is understandable concerned about others, he can simply wear a surgeon's mask that covers his mouth and nose and that way he won't transmit the virus to the other patients in the office
