Poll of GPs finds majority support for UKIP policy

A survey of 500 doctors has backed UKIP's policy of putting 1,000 GPs into A&E departments in hospitals to free up A&E staff to deal with real emergencies.

The Royal College of Emergency Medicine and the Press Association commissioned the poll which found that 61% of GPs nd secondary care doctors would like to see GPs in A&E departments.

UKIP's health spokesman, Suzanne Evans, said:
The government needs to put this idea in train now. At the very least it should be prioritised for as soon as we leave the EU, when vital funding for the NHS is released as we are freed from our membership fees.
