'New deal': 1,000 new physicians associates by 2020


Of course it's too politically inconvenient for one to try and reduce inappropriate patient demand? Why don't people with marital problems, inadequate housing, unhappy with benefit sanctions, requesting sick notes go to solicitors?? Why is it that GPs are always the first line for every single thing? It's because we are FREE! Imagine the outcry if the government tried to make the justice system more accessible and ensured that other services like solicitors, post office etc were available 24/7 with no real additional funding...Solicitors would simply not stand for this..why should we?
