NHS leaders are complicit in stoking patient demand


Jaimie, these campaigns budget for printing, mailing, advertising and social media costs, amongst others. However, they'll always assume a zero cost for GP time as this is 'free'. In future, all such campaigns should cost for the additional appointments that will be generated, and there must be funding for practices to reflect that additional workload.
