GPs to do weekly care home rounds under new NHS England plan


It's pretty hard to avoid this already for nursing homes, given they are used as cut price hospices often, so it is time to be paid for the work already being done. To those who can happily triage away most nursing home request you must be confident in the nurses. At our local home 'doesn't look quite right' could be anything between a solitary cough that day or imminent death, with nothing the incomprehensible bank nurses say on the phone giving clues as to what reality is!
