Headline

The Department of Health is responsible for out-of-hours care, not GPs

Comment

An excellent measured, well researched and well argued article Margaret. I share the other commentators' fears that it won't reach the mainstream media. As for Mr/Ms Anonymous, s/he is the victim of QOF & perhaps a blunt administrative system. S/he needs to understand that the overwhelming majority of GP's really are interested in high quality personalised care but that the policies which have been implemented and the demand that has been created have made that very hard to deliver.
