Local banks of GPs working 'flexibly' to be set up across England

Comment

Most practices have temporary “staff” they can “bank” on in times of need, who already work flexibly... they are called LOCUMS!!! How about increasing funding to GP Partners/PCNs to allow them to make proper use of their locum workforce without leaving them out of pocket?? As for GPs across practices/PCNs cross-covering - that is not going to happen as most practices are running on bare minimum staff to remain profitable... and those GPs who do have some availability might want to have a life too!!
