RCGP sparks row over GP out-of-hours care for complex patients


Last week Jeremy Hunt made it clear that he did not want GP's working nights and weekends again, one of the few things that he has said that make sense. Quite why Dr Gerada wishes to argue against that point baffles me. This will be seized upon by those who do wish to see us knocking on doors at all hours. 5% would inevitably become 10%, 10% become 20%........... I am surprised that she cannot see that. D Gerada is elsewhere quoted as saying GP's are demoralised, we are more so now having been shot in the arse by one of our own. Thanks Dr G.
