Peverley was spot on over paediatric GPs

May I write in support of Phil Peverley regarding his article about how GPs need to continue to do what they have been trained to do with children ('Leave us to be brilliant').

Dr Neil Browning criticises him and cites his local A&E being ‘full of concerned parents with ill children' ('Peverley hit wrong note on paediatric GPs').

My local A&E is full of concerned parents with well children and the last person to correct their concern is a junior doctor with no knowledge of the family. This is just another costly and pointless experiment, pandering to the worried well, just to get their votes at the election, I fear.

From Dr Ric Naish, Ealing, west London
