Seeing different GPs makes patients ‘twice as likely’ to be admitted to hospital


It was this government that wanted it both ways, with super-sized practices on the one hand, and Named GPs on the other. With part-time GPs, full surgeries, "book on the day" only (etc), this Personalised Service throwback to an imagined 1950s Dr Kildare stylee vote-grabber was always nothing more than a conceited fantasy cynically designed to placate bewildered punters. The perfect example of Named GP would be a single handed practice, and we all know what Hunt has done to kill THEM off..........such a hypocrite.
