NHS England Regional Director Proposes Improvement of Primary Care
Dr. Anne Rainsberry, NHS England's London regional director, put forth a proposal recently at an event that primary care should be improved.
Under `aspirational' plans, which have been prepared by a regional area team of NHS England, GPs would be liable to offer access to patients within a period of four hours.
It has been found that the Department of Health has welcomed the proposal. The department lauded the same saying that it was an `innovative' scheme', which had the potential to keep people outside hospitals.
On the other hand, it is being believed by local GP leaders that `poor primary care' was not to be blamed by NHS England in London. They said that the NHS should have looked for `sensible solutions' instead.
But, Dr. Rainsberry said that four-hour access to GPs for patients would help reduce the huge pressures being faced by A&E. A spokesperson for NHS England in London said in the context that the comments by Dr. Rainsberry should be considered as an `aspiration'. Since, it was clear that primary care was in need to change so that it could meet the whole London population's requirements.
"It was part of a discussion about young people in London visiting A&E departments rather than GP services as they know that they will be seen within four hours", said the spokesperson.
