Headline

'Uber-style' private GP appointment service primed for national rollout

Comment

So - I assume that the NHS GP's that are seeing private patients in their NHS tax-payer funded surgeries in their "spare time" will use NHS reception staff, NHS admin staff, NHS clincal systems, the practice's own CQC registration, NHS equipment etc and are effectively being paid twice. Can't really see them paying for using these facilities privately - can you ? Outrageous manipulation of the system, bordering on fraudulent - no wonder the NHS is going bankrupt...
