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

Comment

Self funding ? Debatable: The money saved from reduced admission to A/E is to fund this service as there will be no more '50 millions' after 12 months. In real terms, the amount of money will be cut from the core funding of our A/E colleagues . A good way of further dividing us between primary and secondary care ?? Then if this money is spent on investing currently existing out of hour GP service , can we argue that same 'good' result can be achieved? A horse is a horse, a deer is a deer. One cannot confuse people by pointing to a deer and call it a horse . Chinese old saying .......
