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


I am truly shocked by the professional naivety of our RCGP Chair. To qualify her comments with a medium term unachievable recruitment aspiration does not mitigate the stress and destruction to the profession that this proposal would bring. Colleagues are at breaking point. Expecting a demanding subset of the population to have unfettered access to their exhausted GPs will just trigger a complete recruitment and retention melt down and put anyone off GP as a career for good.
