In full: What GPs think about taking back out-of-hours care

Comment

GP OOHs in Swansea is run by local GPs for all the practices. There are enough GPs locally who choose to do it and it is extremely efficient with information sharing etc. Perhaps the government should look at schemes like this for ideas instead of coming up with things that don't make sense! Its one way to put off young doctors training as a GP with these new plans. I for one am thinking of going back to hospital medicine. Let's face it, it's not exciting or 'sexy' to be a GP most do it because family commitments are easier without forced OOHs.
