Labour pledges £100m to reintroduce 48-hour target to see GP

Comment

Nobody mentions the role of NHS 111 in sending the worried well in their droves to UCCs and A&Es. Assessment by algorithm causes more problems than it solves. That is why there is a need for more timely access to a GP. I agree with the Anon. NHS Manager above, there is no requirement for it to be your preferred choice of GP. A truly sick person will see any doctor who can help, so, built in triage!
