GPs could be asked only to focus on complex patients, suggests NHS director

Comment

Why can't we just have well-trained general internists (like they have in Europe, Asia and the US) and hospitalists (like they have in the US) to work with patients with multi-morbidity? Neither the super-specialised hospital specialist nor the simplistic QOF-scoring, tickbox approach of the general practitioner are appropriate for the care of people with multiple complex conditions.
