Headline

GPs to be offered 'shared savings' from cutting A&E attendance

Comment

GPs are gatekeepers, the whole point is to stop people needlessly going to hospital, if we become conduits to hospital then why should a system pay for a middleman. Rewarding practices for cutting referrals / A&E attendances is a great idea -- where it's been tried before it has worked well.
