Primary Concerns Report 2015
Published: 29 Feb 2016
The survey of 521 GPs, conducted by the research division of Pulse's publishers, Cogora, found that more than half of GPs believed people should be charged for using A&E for excessive alcohol consumption, while two-thirds felt that missed appointments should be charged.
Cogora’s Primary Concerns 2015 report - which, in total, surveyed nearly 1,000 health professionals, including commissioners and nurses - found there was little support for alternative medicines, such as homeopathy, chiropracty and osteopathy.
It comes as the NHS faces its biggest financial problems for years, which has seen commissioners tasked with saving £22bn over the next five years by NHS England and the Government.
