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

Comment

I don't understand why having a GP clininc in a hospital would be any better. We all know outpatients costs more that GP so surely it will just cost more and be more inconvenient for patients at the very best. Moving consultants in to community may be cheaper so perhaps worthwhile? To integrate better we need to have prompt and good communication and share the same computer system not be in the same building otherwise there would be no community care and that's the basis of good value patient centred care. Why cant these lot just shut up and either increase funding or not, educate the public on self care for minor illness or not. We don't want any other ideas if theyre all going to involve massive reorganization and wasting large sums of money.
