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


Spot on Dr Peverley, as usual. For 'must be available for decision support' read 'will be passed the responsibility for every single OOH contact'. That means working 24/7 because as GP's we will want to see and examine that patient to ensure their safety and our continued licence to practice. Give up all semblance of a normal life, die young and miserable. I think that's a bit of a backward step! I can't wait for the 8 week 'consultation exercise' which this article suggests started today. So in 8 weeks they will be telling us that what they suggested today is what will now happen.
