Flagship £50m extended hours scheme receives 250 bids


A prediction: they will fund it for 2 years then say, "Well, you can now fund it out of all the savings you make by people NOT going to ED" except, as we have seen time and again, new services create new demand and, paradoxically, never reduce pressure on existing ones. So there will be no savings, and entrepreneurs will find themselves stung for redundancy. I bet many of the applicants will be NHS trusts in fact or the occasional very large GP partnership.
