Following up on what Deputy Catherine Murphy said about young people not being able to get access to GPs, I know of one company that, because its employees were having difficulty in getting GPs, decided to employ its own GP on a full-time basis. This is going to happen more, where a company that has young employees who cannot get access to GPs will have a full contract with a GP who will be working just with it and no one else.
