GP out-of-hours services to include more prominent role for nurses

Comment

7.31 - I agree - nurses are cheaper per hour but take longer to see and treat, and refer more - the experience of Walk in centres seems to support this. Nurses rarely have a 2nd gear to see more to clear a backlog or increased demand when there is a local or national panic (flu, meningitis, septicaemia, Zika, ebola etc etc)
