Surge in non-elective hospital activity hits CCG budgets

Not surprising. No amount of primary care access will stem this tide. A tide of high expectation from the user in a system which is bursting at the seam.The user of the service has no legal or financial consequence for inappropriate use. Most of what we see in daily practice are on the whole with self limiting minor illness or the worried well. You can not contain this. The worm is out of the bag, the rot set in with the new contract! Time to get the user of the service to take some responsibility.
