I am also a great fan of things being done at primary care level, but we do not have the personnel. I am sure the Tánaiste is aware that a small percentage of patients are having difficulty in accessing general practice. This is the beginning of the problem. It takes four or five years to train a general practitioner. If we wait that long, it will not be good enough. I would like the Government to propose how we can correct the manpower problem that is starting to lead to problems in accessing services.
