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


If you ask a 3 year old what he wanted, and bought him all he wanted every day, guess how long your money will last? Do you tell your child he cannot have everything he wants and you'll only buy him things which you feel is right for him? Unfortunately many patients has the same level of self restraint and understanding of the budgets as a 3 years old. People don't seem to under stand referrals costs money, drugs costs money, MRI scans costs money, operation costs money and even an appointment with me costs money. And not all of it necessarily good or needed for that person. But there again, everyone seems to think their unmet needs are far greater than the unmet needs of the society as a whole. P.s. I choose 3 years olds as that that age awareness of other's needs hasn't developed yet. I mean no discrimination against any 3 year olds :)
