Seven-day GP services 'reduced A&E attendances by 26%'

Comment

Dear All, Oh and i forgot to add that all the evidence in capacity in unscheduled care is that any initial diversion soon disappears, extra availability will be all consumed. A/E attenders will realise A/E is 26% less full so will spread the word and the GP sessions will soon get filled. Lets do it again in 3 years time when i predict we wil find A/E up to their previosu levels and the GP sessions also fully booked. then it will be spend £4 save nothing. Regards Paul C
