It has been recently revealed in a report that the family doctors who tend to bring a lot of patients to the hospital with the purpose of being able to earn more, are being asked to cut back on the same. The number of patients has seen a rise recently.
This is after it was fond that even after bringing so many patients to the hospital for treatment, they aren't being taken the best care of. The GPs further added that they are under undue pressure to refer patients as well. This is why they need to reduce the number of patients so that the ones present can be taken the best possible care of, in the time to come.
"Once again, it is patients who are having to bear the brunt of supposed "efficiency savings. `Trusts and the Department of Health cannot continue to pretend that it is business as usual while patients suffer", said Katherine Murphy, the Chief Executive of the Patients Association.
There is need for a fair ration of patients and staff to be made so that there can be a better treatment made available for them in the time to come. This needs to be done in order to help the patients get the best of services as well as o decrease the pressure from the staff in the time to come. There is need for appropriate measures to the taken for helping the people in need, because the levels of hospital services seem to be decreasing with time. This is why there is need for all the more efforts to be made. This would not only help the patients, but also result in saving funds for the hospitals in the time to come. It remains to be seen what steps are taken here to make the situation work.
