GPs underfunded as 'penance' for signing 2004 contract, says Hunt

Comment

Care Home patients should not be registered with GPs - instead by local trusts - who manage them with outreach teams with specialist nurses supported by all the consultant teams. They can have a rotating policy - moving patients from hospital into homes once well, and taking in the sick instead so using the capacity more freely - n knowledge the patients will continue to receive care and even IV antibiotics in the community etc - unlike virtual wards where patients received virtually no care (if in fact any). Now that would be joined up care and thinking.
