Rising university fees threaten to skew health services

Professors Peter Brooks and Steve Trumble write in The Conversation (20.10.14) that higher university fees will drive medical graduates away from general practice and into high-fee specialist practices, arguing that there is a need to recognise ‘that GPs have an equal place in the health hierarchy as valued, broadly skilled cognitive specialists who reply on their diagnostic and medical management skills rather than primarily performing procedures’.
