Extended access pulls GPs away from surgeries, finds partnership review

THIS IS TRUE.... SOME WORK IN HUBS FOR £80 PER HOUR FOR 15 MINUTE CONSULTATIONS, NO PAPERWORK, NO REFERRALS AND TELL EVERYONE TO "SEE THEIR OWN GP"-AN EASY RIDE. THIS PROVIDES "CRAP" VALUE FOR MONEY FOR THE TAXPAYER COMPARED TO SALARIED GPs AND PARTNERS IN GP PRACTICES WHO EARN LESS THAN HALF THIS HOURLY RATE, WORK 12 HOUR DAYS AND HAVE MASSIVE RESPONSIBILITY AND STRESS. I CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS SOME "SPECIAL BUSINESS" RELATIONSHIP WITH THOSE RUNNING THE HUBS WHO HAVE MANAGED TO PERSUADE THEM TO OVERFUND GP HUBS WHILE FURTHER UNDERFUNDING REGULAR GP PRACTICES. IT IS LIKE SOME SICK JOKE-THEY ARE PUTTING IN ALL THE RIGHT MONEY JUST INTO THE WRONG HANDS.
