Two-week wait for GP appointments to become the norm in many practices 'within a year'


Fund and we shall provide. If money follows workload then GPs should be able to cope with the added demand that is being imposed on them from work previously done in secondary care. I mean serious funding. Funding that could employ an extra salaried GP or a nurse practitioner. How much longer can the NHS as a whole go on. I have every sympathy for our emergency centre colleagues and I am sure they feel the same way about us. After all, we are all in this together.
