Government urged to explore salaried GP service by Lords


I'm happy for this to happen as long as we are remunerated correctly. Just yesterday, I had a retainer GP call me 1/2 way through the afternoon that she can't finish her work as she's run late from morning surgery and I had to bail her out (doing extra visits etc) on top of my usual work. As a salaried GP, I'll be telling her to call her employer and it'll be none of my problem! As our juniors are sadly becoming accustomed to this way of working, NHS will find it will not be able to mange primary care in cost effective manner. But soon, it will not be our problem to solve.
