GPs told to refer patients to private sector in bid to cut local trust’s waiting times


they are not saying not to refer they are asking us to use private providers. I just think that it is poor that we are underinvesting in our existing health system and that we then have to use these outside agencies. Why are the hospitals not expanding to take on new staff? Where is the support for development of GP special interest? -anonymous salaried!
