Headline

Hunt says there will be 'flexibility' in 5,000 GP target

Comment

He has not promised 5000 more GPs capacity, he has promised 5000 more in the "total GP workforce", which can mean no increase in capacity whatsoever. You have to read the words very carefully. For example, 5,000 full time GPs leave, 10,000 1/2 time GPs join, there is an increase of 5000 in the total GP workforce, box ticked, JH claims target met Daily hate Mail is happy. But the increase in capacity is zero.
