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

Comment

Has this bloke asked Pts if they would like that? I have several complex case patients whom I've know for many years and have a good doctor-patient relationship with, and I doubt many of them will happily travel the longer distance (as I assume there will be few of these super surgeries) to see a doctor they've never met. p.s. Most consultants can see 40+ highly complex patients/day Peter. I know this as my partner works with consultants. The difference is the support - consultants will have CSNs, junior grades, secretary supporting them, we have none.
