GP practice paid to divert lonely patients to charities


I agree with Vinci Ho. I have seen more than a decade wasted by "managers" of the then PCTs, who moved under TUPE regs to NHSE, that would do ANYTHING they could to avoid GPs being paid for doing extra work. It just wasn't in their ethic. So, we STILL have NHSE refusing to give GPs a LES for minor injuries, but at the same time whining about the cost of unnecessary ED attendance. This is why many of us are sceptic.
