How can practices fight unfunded transfer of work?


when hopsitals and CCGs do nothing about this it drives GPs out of general practice. So either they preempt the issue and set boundaries of workload with payment, if we are expected to do hospital work, or the hospitals are fined. Its in no ones interest to continue as it is. Once all the GP practices have collapsed and its all noctors and short term and locum contracts there will be no one for the hospital to dump on any more and it will all come back to them big time. This is not how to run a service and it will backfire badly on the dumpers. general practice is currently keeping hospitals functioning for free. it is not a sustainable model for the long term. Hospitals destroy general practice at their own peril. they have been warned.
