Default Plea for action over podiatry service

The Telegraph and Argus are reporting:
Plea for action over podiatry service
Doctors are being called on to take action to bring back a podiatry service after it was axed about six years ago.

Hundreds of patients, mainly elderly who need treatment for their feet, are having to travel to Skipton Hospital because there is no service being offered at Cross Hills Group Practice.

If the changes go ahead for the new version of GP commissioning this may become a more common situation.

A GP will decide against some of or all of our activities as he/she will feel they have more important things to pay for.

Look at all the services that a GP does not provide and consider how those services are provided outside of a GP practice.

eg Dentistry, Optometry, hearing aids,

So how will the allied health professions fit into the new world if GP's do not wish to fund provide it.
