'Sharing the load' seems to mean dumping work on GPs


With respect you are completely wrong. We have a contract. This falls outside of that contract therefore we should say no. Then it is up to the CCG to commission the service. Why would you do it for free ? It would detriment your existing ability to care for patients and affect the viability of your business. It is a new world I am afraid and we have to think as a business to be able to survive. Also are you an expert in this drug, you can imagine that if there was a problem the wolves would go for you. Therefore it also increases you clinical risk.
