CCG backs down on plan to block all non-urgent GP referrals

Comment

But that CCG has GPs on its board, what on earth were they thinking of letting that proposal ever see the light of day in the first place? Why didn't they shoot it to shreds when it was first mentioned in their meetings? You do have to wonder what is fundamentally and extremely seriously wrong with the GPs on CCG boards. Since no sane, uncorrupted GP would ever let this idea get passed them, please explain how this idea got passed the GPs on that CCG board? They must have endorsed it. How can they be so out of touch with reality? And if so, how come they haven't been removed?
