GPs expected to provide 24/7 'decision support' under proposed out-of-hours revamp


So what is being proposed in a very sneaky way is that a GP from the practice has to be on standby to answer queries.If its a young infant then that's not something you can reliably do over the phone.So will you be saying "yes go ahead admit" or see the patient for yourself.You can call it whatever you want but its still OOH!
