Working group set up as NHS England admits GPs still suffer workload ‘dump’


The ONLY way this will change is if there is money involved. If hospitals were charged (fined?) for dumping workload on to GP practices and GPs were rewarded for taking on that workload (or better still rewarded for reporting the dump but bouncing back the workload) then the problem would stop instantly. Anything short of that is not going to work. Simple.
