How our ‘welfare champions’ free up valuable GP time


All very commendable. However forgive me for the poke but, quote: "No extra money was required to set up the service, the only investment we had to make was to find time to administer the initiative". So it did cost money and time then? Your CCG must wet its pants laughing when you say the above as it probably thinks "Carry on then" no charge. It might have been better to emphasise the cost, even blow it up a bit and submit it as a pilot with the view the CCG might care to invest? Thereby your local GP surgeriess are not faced with the CCG comment that "Dr Anthony Nicolaou's surgery does it and says it doesn't cost!" Thanks mate.
