GP networks will create 100,000 extra appointments in Gloucestershire

No. Like you we never thought there there would be 5000 more GPs. Unlike you we got off our arses at the earliest opportunity and actually DID something. We've had PCNs for 2 years. We have physios, paramedics, frailty nurses and mental health workers in practices. We'd like more, so we'll have more. No one idea is a silver bullet, but they all add up to something significant. The number of GPs in Gloucestershire is actually going up, and number of vacancies going down. Funny what a bit of strategic 'naive wishful thinking' will do eh?
