Revealed: spiralling cost of seven-day GP access

Comment

gosh Vinci how do you find the time? I'm thinking about a new way of dividing healthcare. No longer 'primary' and 'secondary'care but 'diagnosis' and 'treatment'. Because market forces can reduce the costs of treatments and patients can decide what treatments are worth their own money (or insurance premiums). Diagnosis should always be free on the NHS and impartial, unbiased and with evidence-based advice on treatment options. The NHS is and always will be the best in the world at the latter. But a lot of treatments aren't worth the cost and patients and the Govt and healthcare insurers need to learn about this.
