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

Comment

The real question is when will A+E operate TOTAL TRIAGE and re-direct inappropriate attenders to the correct pathway be it pharmacy, WIC, mental health services, social worker etc without letting them through their doors? The fact that A+E gets a handsome tariff for seeing them, rather than rejecting them says it all.
