Disappointing that GP should champion polyclinic plan
I was astonished to read Dr Sheila Scott's comments in support of the Newcastle polyclinic idea (News, 28 November). Is she really so naive as to think this is a premises issue?
How far would £10m go to improve ‘requirements for disabled access' in the already existing Newcastle surgeries?
If this is the best justification for the Government's latest politically motivated and inadequately researched idea, irrelevant to genuine improvement in patient care, well, should we be surprised?
I am disappointed, however, that an experienced GP is prepared to be a spokesperson for it.
