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


Anonymous 10:59 So are you happy with an 'I'm Alright Jack' healthcare service ? Personally we may be ok, but we are mothers and fathers and have parents. Pretty soon we will all know someone suffering with treatable illnesses, if they had plenty of money. Even if you have enough money now, what if you have an expensive illness or become old ? The NHS is the best system we have for general society, but it needs to be used responsibly and cherished for the precious resource that it is. It is not acceptable for dedicated professionals to be abused and treated like servants. Even if you do not care for doctors, self interest should make you treat them better. There is a global shortage of doctors and we have very portable skills.
