Daily Mail, 12 April 2016

The Daily Mail published an article on Reform‘s report, Who cares? The future of general practice.

It highlighted Reform‘s findings that public demand does exist for seven-day GP services. It also cited Reform‘s assertion that two thirds of patients taking up surgery appointments don’t need to see a GP.

“The author of the Reform report, Alex Hitchcock, said: ‘Employing 5,000 more GPs is nothing more than a sticking plaster for an out-of-date model.’ He added: ‘Bigger practices and new technology can deliver better access and stop millions of unnecessary A&E visits.”
