Health secretary announces 'one-stop' plan to revolutionise role of GPs


Good luck doing inulin pump clinics and dialysis in your spare rooms guys. Your great leaders have convinced our jezza that you're a limitless resource, and everyone is secondary care is a money grabbing lazybones. Now we can all sit back and let you do the graft. Lovely. Except you'll fail, and we just get to mop up the mess when it alll goes wrong. Just like the admissions avoidance, which simply increased referrals. And yes, mr GP trainer, hospital staff are a scarce and precious resource, which needs to be deployed where they are most effective, it just to make your life easier. Which for the most part, is not doing primary care clinics for the privileged few.. 40% of all advertised consultant jobs are unfilled at the moment, and we need to look after our inpatients seven days a week. Unlike you, we haven't shirked that responsibility.
