Comment

like nhs 111, pharmicists, walk in center, ooh there will be additional work force whic will tell patien "IF YOU ARE ILL YOU SHOULD SEE OWN GP" gp consultation is not like visiting hair saloon. private gp need to prescribe privately, if investigations needed then they should be done privately. 39 pound will be only for one consutation. no matter how much you tell patients they will have to see emergency and they will be told to go to a and e or see gp. i was asked by some patients in 1980's to register them as private patients . i refused for above reason.
