Thank you. it's very informative and short to the point.
I absolutely agree with you. We are not A&E, so should not be treated like A&E.
Mr Hunt is out of touch with what is happening on the ground. Many patients are seen in OOH but some choose to go to A&E. The government needs to put more resources into OOH, employing more doctors and nurses. OOH is much more cost effective than A&E. Not many GPs would be interested in taking the responsibility of OOH care as part of their contract. It is just a wishful thinking.
