'Corner shop' GPs should expand and employ hospital consultants, says NHS England

Comment

So for this pet project valuable monies will be diverted to ensure some short term success but those projects will slowly die. How stupid are these people? At least in the genuine commercial world these experiments would be costed. You need real increases in funding to primary care - the system works. Where things need to improve focus and small funding improvements will probably deal with it. This is again based around deprived areas and inner city hospitals where the hospital could provide primary care from its existing infrastructure. Has nothing to do with the vast majority of primary care or non london hospitals
