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


"This is false. All the Europeans use a similar co-payment model and they have just as many socio-economic problems as us but they get better outcomes for their people. " Actually that is not true, across a few areas of cancer care that has been reported. However dig a bit deeper and you realize that France for example have much poorer quality systems of data collection. there are whole sections (usually inner city french neighborhoods) where patients do not figure in the data. Can;t comment about other European states but I'm a little suspicious about some of the data sets they publish. That's not to say the UK is perfect but its up there and across the breadth of patient data and audit data it probably is the most reliable.
