Thousands of hospital doctors to be drafted into GP surgeries

Posted on May 11th, 2023

  • Proposal could see specialty and specialist doctors working in GP surgeries 
  • But top GPs warned the move may be unsafe and raises patient safety concerns 

Thousands of hospital doctors could be recruited to work in GP surgeries to solve the appointments crisis.

The drastic proposal, yet to be confirmed, would see specialty and specialist (SAS) medics drafted into practices across the country.

Such doctors have not undergone the highest level of training, and don’t reach the level of consultant.

Health bosses hope the plan will help slash GP waiting times and create millions of appointments.

But top GPs fear the move could be unsafe, with the lack of clarity of the role of SAS medics raising patient safety concerns.
