Headline

Two surgeries to close in seven-day GP access area

Comment

More info needed! Were these practices part of the federation? Was closure part of a rationalisation or genuinely because of failure to recruit? Can the federation not manage to come up with a different access model rather than primarily GP led? Having asked those questions there's no doubt about the recruitment crisis - we're experiencing the first showers before a mighty storm even in a place like York where people really want to come an live. Hope this beings some sense to the extended access agenda which is a totally unworkable and unnecessary nonsense in my opinion and will hold back the access innovation agenda enormously.
