RCGP says GPs’ place is in their practices, not A&E

Comment

A&E triage nurses should be able to divert inappropriate patients to 111, the OOH GP or the daytime surgery who can see them on a sit and wait basis. The only currency patient's can offer is their waiting time and having to wait longer is the only deterrent to inappropriate users.
