Practices told to reduce emergency admissions to receive £5 per patient funding

Comment

Hunt: it would be a good thing to improve continuity. Yes. Converts to, we'll limit it to over 75s. And set a target. And have some bureaucracy around it. And spend it through higher level bodies who will make their own rules up. They make them up, add in some more arbitrary targets, which compromise GP professional judgment and patient care. How the world turns. Hope: not this way, but there is a better way.
