'Nurses are concerned that the public misunderstand A&E'


The problem of unsuitable patient visits to A&E is the rolling programme of closures of nurse led NHS Walk-In Centres. One recent example in East London saw a WIC closure with a fractional transfer of staff to a local A&E. The local A&E was happy to absorb the funding, but not so keen on the 70+ per day walk-in patients seeking primary care. The alternative WIC sites were some distance away and working GP surgery hours.
