NHS trusts continue to send discharge summaries to GPs later than required


NHSE passing the buck. CCGs are not responsive to GPs in real life, and most of the board are appointees. These are contractual breaches but are being ignored. Treat them as breaches. Tell the hospitals to get their act together or fine them, and invest the money in general practice. They would soon change their mechanisms. They continue because they know they can get away with it.
