Seven-day GP access pioneer hails cut in unnecessary A&E attendance

Comment

"Its just pandering to impossibe patient demand." This is exactly the problem. Unfortunately the CCG will be happy (if the above is to be believed) because GPs pandering to inappropriate demand is cheaper than A+E pandering to it. The first poster is also completely correct. Since this was deemed a success before it had started, is anyone surprised about this "result".
