I have just come back from a few days leave and was about to write my GPC report when I realised that actually, I have nothing to say this month. Much of the meeting 10 days ago was either of no interest to grassroots GPs (being matters of process within GPC) or is confidential.
I was hoping to have more info on the proposed imposition but have none as yet. It does not, however, look good.
NHS 111 is still a mess and looks to be likely to cost around £2.2million per year more than the current system.
NHS Mandate/online access business will need to be worked on and Jeremy
Hunt already seems to be willing to talk about what is possible and
more importantly from our point of view, what is not.
And that's it really.
So there will be no written report this month.
