'Named GP' plans thrown into disarray as minister suggests practices can devolve care coordination to district nurses


Oh divide and conquer eh? GP v DN, DN v GP. How long before we have a DN recruitment and retention issue? How will GPs manage DN commissioned by others when it is their 'named' name the patient sees? All this does is state that the government accepts that GPs will not be able to deliver this promise (jn a year of election) but they will still be held accountable if it isn't! In effect GPs become the managers of the DN service too! Glad we got rid of all these bureaucrats if GPs have so much time to 'coordinate' every bit of the healthcare system - they must have been chronically underworked!
