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


I totally agree with Mary Hawking. Being on call at all, even for 5% patients, would be completely unacceptable - we are already doing more than our fair share during our 12 hour days. Out of hours may be a mess, but the government seems hell bent on wrecking the core hours too (which cover the vast majority of consultations, including serious life threatening conditions). I will most definitely resign my partnership if out-of -hours is enforced.
