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

Comment

Access to healthcare are like road building for traffic,The more roads you build the more they fill with traffic.The only thing that reduced traffic on the roads is when the cost of fuel went up.This will have to happen in healthcare but in the NHS system there is no cost to the user and supply will always be filled and eventually saturated.The only thing that is giving at the moment is the workforce and once this happens it will be catastophic and stystemic failure will follow(if it is not already).
