Jeremy Hunt admits he is ‘struggling to deliver’ 5,000 GPs by 2020

Comment

NOT A HOPE. And he knows it. And he also knows that he won’t be Health Secretary in 2020. The only way for them to hit the 5k extra GP target is to fiddle with the figures, which they are certain to do. Wait and see. They are pinning their hopes on the new alphabetti of acronyms - PACS (yes, a stroke of genius to duplicate THAT one), ACOs, ACSs, oops sorry ICOs and ICSs, STPs, MCPs, ICPs, WAS (Working at Scale), AI, See Chris Ham’s excellent guide https://www.kingsfund.org.uk/publications/making-sense-integrated-care-systems
