Locating GPs in A&E 'increases demand and doesn’t save money'

Comment

I worked in an early pilot as a GP in a&e and it never made any economic sense to me - I would spend 5 hours seeing earache and back pain, which otherwise would have been seen by the SHO at a much lower hourly rate than mine! How could that save money?
