It's fairly simple: Investment in core General Practice actually saves money in the medium term. That is not the same as certain DES or LES schemes, or extra targets, or extra opening times; but instead just providing more money for the core services - so practices can staff appropriately plan appropriately and do more than just fire-fight. Investments in secondary care just eat up huge amounts of money without solving the problem. It is not rocket science.
