Headline

GPC to propose radical plan to merge all unscheduled NHS care in bid to solve out-of-hours crisis

Comment

Of course patients should be consulted. But in reality patient demands need to be responsibly balanced with what's possible, what's affordable and most importantly with clinical priorities which put the mosy needy first. Currently too often those that misuse the system and shout the loudest are pulling valuable resources away from people who really need them. Misuse of urgent care is one of the biggest reasons it's under pressure...it's time for a bit of responsibility and rationality to return to the way the NHS is used. My goodness if it wasn't for confidentially we'd all have some stories to tell....
