'DH does not know how many GPs are needed', auditors conclude


The government ideology is best to NOT know as the promise of 5000 extra GP`s would not be questioned!!! Ironically if one looks at the McKinsey presentation to DOH in 2014, it suggests "shifting to lower cost channels" for primary care-aka HCA and Nurses (pg 26) The worst one is in page 23- To encourage digital adoption to "decrease the availability of non-digital channels". So doctors have been reduced from being a pillar of the society to a "non-digital channel". Interestingly McKinsey may not have told DOH about an article by themselves that 17% of such major IT changes can put the whole Organization (NHS) in jeopardy!
