Hospitals ready themselves for primary care takeover


"I’ve got a team going round A&E, they spot older people and stop them going into hospital. They go in and are able to get them out early – but every time I do that I lose money”. But thats the problem with GP land it isnt activity payment based. Such surgeries will be filled with salaried GPs who last a few months at a time, there will be no continuity of care and admission rates will be high - or is this what they are after????????????
