GPs could provide 24-hour care for the frail and elderly, says RCGP chair

Comment

Well said Shaba. Where is this funding going to come from and the man power to do the 24 hr care for the elderly ? It will be suggested that the money will follow the patients and that even though there is an initial cash-flow problem, if GPs hit the road running and get organised..i.e, agree to take this extra onorous work for a pittance..the floodgates will open as soon as the recession ends and all will be handsomely rewarded. This ` waiting for the recession to end` would be like the ` With a view` offer in many practices, where the view eventually becomes just that of the back garden.
