Experts warn new DES is unlikely to reduce unplanned admissions


The goverment assumes that GPs' admit patients for the fun of it. There is no GP, I know,who will not admit a pt when necessary regardless of all the plethora of pathways to keep people out of hospital. If the goverment wants admissons cut than they need to make GPs' comfortable by providing crown immunity and no fault scenario. The latter is not going to happen and thus I feel only a brave (or a stupid) GP will put herself/himself exposed to litigation
