A report commissioned by the Department of Health says GPs\’ administrative support teams should be radically altered to cut costs.
However, doctors and surgery staff say the proposal is \”flawed\”.
The plan would involve centralising appointment bookings through a national call centre, clearing surgeries of thousands of staff.
It\’s insane. The NHS already suffers hugely from over centralisation.
Quite apart from the fact that GPs are in fact independent businesses, not arms of that over centralised organisation anyway.
No, go away.
