Some GP practice-based therapists will be recruited from within NHS

Comment

@1207 They are not working in 'secondary care' in it's truest sense. They are working for the current counselling service for community patients (IAPT). Shifting around the room where they work is not going to improve access for anyone. Its a bit like opening a new GP surgery to take the pressure away from other local practices. It works if the new practice is staffed by GPs new to the area, but does not help at all if the same GPs just move from one building to another.
