GPs refute briefing claims that they are 'referring large numbers to A&E'


Clearly its a variable experience accessing GP surgeries during the total triage system mostly now in place. Anecdotally, I am aware of comments from many local patients who cannot get through on the phone after long periods trying. Obviously, this will need to get sorted as the backlog for "routine" medical care build up. Not quite world class is it. Austerity hurts.
