Government to fast-track other medical professionals swapping over to general practice


Have national advertising campaigns telling patients not to attend GP with cough for 1 day no matter how chesty they think it is, and get rid of access targets which perversely encourage access for non essential problems and clog up the system. No more see GP for letter, any other crap no-one else is willing to do, and make hospitals actually see and fix patients not just run a test and say it is normal so not my problem, back to you. Once done then the stupid workload issues and pressure will reduce and allow GPs to be GPs in a safe environment and then the exodus will slow, once being a GP is not the equivalent of wanting a hole in your head.
