CCG to cut urgent care centre hours following GP at Hand deficit


Dear All, What splendidly astute decision making by the CCG, facing a £31,000,000 debt from a service they approved catering for 47,000 patients. The answer is to close a service costing less than 1/10th of GP @ Hand treating a population 4.8 times as large. All the financial sluice gates are fully open so we'll stop watering the window boxes. Pure management brilliance. Regards PauL C
