Headline

GPs to oversee all vulnerable patients under emergency admissions DES  

Comment

The real problem in A&E is the fact that everything is attempted to be seen. Have highly skilled triage nurses, GPs and A&E consultants/registrars at the front line telling people to go away with trivial problems , this will reduce the load. As an SHO in A&E I didn't feel comfortable doing that as I wasn't experienced enough. 5 yrs later I can sort the wheat from the chaff very easily!
