GPSIs are not worthless
Just to be clear, I do not think that GPSIs are 'a waste of money'.
This headline was added by Pulse after I wrote my article, which was intended to argue that GPSIs may not be the most cost-effective way to increase specialist capacity or reduce waiting lists.
I have no doubt that many GPSIs do excellent work, and they are certainly not a waste of money - just maybe not the best way to spend money.
