Surge in non-elective hospital activity hits CCG budgets          

Comment

I think previous study has NOT concluded simply improving primary care access (i.e. more appointments) will not reduce AED attendance See: 'Inappropriate' attendance at an accident and emergency department by adults registered in local general practices: how is it related to their use of primary care? Martin A, Martin C, Martin PB, Martin PA, Green G, Eldridge S. Of course the AED attendance will go up - waiting time is getting longer, secondary care services are cut and becoming incredibly beuraucratic, demand for appointment is increasing etc
