Out-of-hours services 'broken' as single GP regularly covers 370,000 patients

Comment

Totally agree with 9:55 - the contracts are awarded on a commercial basis and supply and demand needs to be taken in to account. What is not acceptable is to win a contract on the basis of safe care, make a bigger profit because you are providing unsafe care (as you are not paying for GPs) and consider that acceptable.
