GPs should be offered £1bn to improve premises and open 8 'til 8, says NHS England-backed report

Comment

Lord Darzi makes decisions for London in Primary Care Quite frankly he is not in Primary Care so should leave decisions about it to those in the know and stick with General Surgery. He is however right that premises need updating desperately, in order to survive in the next 10-20 years. Forget about 8-8, that's really is playing with politics to try to win votes, but even to sustain daytime working premises are largely creaking at the seams and need updating/expanding to accommodate the mass demand that our current population appear to need. One way of generating this cash is by starting to charge patients, but that really wouldn't win any votes for Lord Darzi. It's about time we got some real truths from politicians and those apparently representing us and not this mind of nonsense statements of 1bn needed for London Primary care. Let's not go down the North/South divide that really does belittle the bigger picture here
