Headline

Patients to be allowed to self-refer for cancer diagnostics without going through GP

Comment

Either there is good evidence that a substantial number of cancers are being diagnosed late because of unnecessary delays by GPs (in which case please produce it) or this is non-evidence based and politically driven and those involved are quite happy with the implication that GPs are to blame (in which case stop reading Mr Thomas and the Daily Wail). Alternatively, like the Labour Gvt in 2004, those making the decisions have absolutely no idea how much we do.
