Headline

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

Comment

its not a bad idea actually. Its nice to see someone making a productive suggestion about how we might "counter" the governments ridiculous propoganda and headline grabbing rubbish by proposing a sensible idea of our own. This is a good idea in principle but i would be concerned that it would be very diffcult to implement practically. Having said that, one organisation running the OOH care would mean at least a joined up approach to services (you would hope). This would seem to be a better alternative to the suggestions of the people who seem to think we all should be on call 24/7, 365 days a year. Presumably, this proposal would allow for a continuation of OOh being provided by GPs who actually want to do it rather than it being an imposition made from above. Anonoymous GP registrar
