GP out-of-hours service may relocate to hospital to 'take pressure off A&E'

Comment

Where there are OOH units in the same hospital as A+E , such as Royal Sussex County there is great co-operation between the medical staff. It does not take pressure off A+E . The only way to do this would be to put patients on the examination couches instead of a trolly in the emergency department. Poor access to GP's is still the bullshit line being peddled by Terry May et al. It's the lack of beds that's the problem.
