Gordon Brown today offered hope to the human resource professionals when he pledged to reform GP services.
The prime minister told delegates at the Labour Party conference in Bournemouth he would make it easier for working people to see doctors.
Senior HR professionals last week told Personnel Today that GP services needed a shake-up.
“Brown said today: “We will make GP hours friendlier to families, open up opportunities to see a GP near your place of work aswell as your home, expand walk-in centres, medical services at pharmacies and ensure a better service from NHS Direct.“
There was little else for employers as Brown’s first Labour Party Conference speech as prime minister focussed on housing, crime and the health service.
