This private service should store up support of GPs
You reported that a private GP service, U-First Healthcare, is planning to set up clinics in Tesco superstores across the country (May 5). GPs would be working at £184 per session or £100,000 a year.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this service. If some GPs want to work or earn extra doing some private work, so be it.
Patients will not be walking through the surgery doors next day. Surely it will supplement the services provided by local GPs. This is not going to be a two-tier service as some colleagues think.
