New breast screening figures prompt fresh uptake appeal MMR Vaccine Over 10,000 NHS pharmacies begin treating people for common conditions Thousands of hospital doctors to be drafted into GP surgeries NHS Health Help Now
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.
