Can CCGs curb emergency admissions?

Comment

Its all well and good giving GPs Incentives these Incentives should be made availiable to all Healthcare Professionals including, NMC, RGN, HPC Allied Healthcare Proffs such as Paramedics responsible for patients that have an Urgent Pre-Hospital Emergency and Unscheduled care need. As often these first contact practitioners are best placed to deliver the right care and service to patients "See and Refer" or treating and Discharging "See and Treat". Also services need to be made availiable 24/7 as opposed the current 9-5 and nothing at a weekend as in many cases the olny alternative left to practitioners is A&E.
