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


I don't think Mr Stevens is the first to use corner shop as an analogy - did not RCGP too? - This model is looking for ways in which General Practice can be developed and this will include pressurising CCGs to extract from secondary care the tariff prices which can follow the activity away from secondary to primary care - primary care will become a matrix of boutique undertakings but it requires GPs to put pressure on the CCGs (themselves) and to challenge the NHS to fund the consequences of this long term, integrated care, GP led service - very few people seem to be taking this approach: why is that?
