GP calls off recruitment attempts after introducing e-consultations


"The only downside is trying to FUND locum cover...." Is this a typo? Surely it should be FIND. This poor GP may be facing zero annual leave and burn out, or risk breaching her contract. An admirable story, and pleased they have found a way out of the crisis, but you can't help worrying about the possibly indefensible complaints arising from e-consults that will surely start creeping in. I suspect her defence fees will rocket too.
