NHS admits GPs 'consistently exceeded capacity' last winter despite extra funds

Comment

if we take 350,000 appts at £35 per appt = £12.25 million, plus home visits at £100 per visit = 2000 x 100 = £200,000 plus ooh visits at £50 per appt at £2.7 million = £15.15 million unpaid to GP practices and OOH providers. ie a massive freebie to this country. why not just pay GPs directly now before winter starts from a GP fund of £40 million so they can get systems in place to cope with the demand when it comes. or is this just too simple an idea? ps bypass CCGs -pay direct to GP practice.
