First get enough doctors into the system to allow it to run smoothly. New medical students will take 10 years to reach the front line, and yes there was a small increase, but the numbers needed don't match those being trained. Nor does it cover those training and leaving, and the large numbers choosing to work part time. Stop finding even more ways to take GP's away from front line patient work. Rearranging deck chairs on the titanic sounds about right for most other plans which don't address workforce/workload issues.
