Nearly 420 extra GPs needed across country to deliver A&E streaming service

Comment

In my experience only a very small percentage of these patients are fully sorted and the vast majority are directed back to their own gp for review of their ongoing / chronic problem they either wanted a second opinion on; had been told there was no appt for at their own surgery or just thought the best outing on a cold and wet easter weekend was their local a&e. Sort out the funding Staffing crisis in GP and this demand disappear. Just a thought .
