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

Comment

We employed Consultants to work in the Surgery during fundholding. They wanted twice GP pay and have an entourage of nurse, secretary and receptionist at their beck and call. We barely had enough referrals from our 17000 patients to have a monthly dermatology clinic! A properly funded and resourced general practice is the best value for the NHS. Why keep returning to models that do not work!!
