Headline

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

Comment

It is clear that Mr Hunt and his advisers have no idea at all about how to deal with the ever growing demand for services. If the department wants patients to be seen 24/7 and sometimes this will be by other professional groups and not doctors, then they need to be open and honest with the voting public, rather than spin inaccuracy over increases in GP capacity which everyone knows is rubbish. The public need to understand that they may not see a doctor when they call either in or out of hours. For some this may be fine and acceptable, for others this may be worrying.
