DH names hospital trusts that will get money to place GPs in A&E


What about the medico-legal risks to a GP working at Casualty front door? Send a single child home who then dies during the next week and you will be hung out to dry. This work will be at least as risky as OOH sessions - and look at the MDU/MPS fees for this. I presume that 'crown-indemnity' will be offered as the GP is a Trust employee - but this won't be of much comfort if you lose your license.
