The plans would mean GPs see and treat the majority of patients arriving at Hammersmith and Charing Cross hospital's emergency wards.
A group of GPs are bidding with England's largest trust, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, to run all ‘unscheduled' primary care for Hammersmith and Fulham PCT, in a bid to reduce A&E attendances.
GPC chairman Dr Laurence Buckman said he thought it was an idea that would be popular with other PCTs. ‘I'm sure every emergency ward around the country will have a GP practice in it within a few years.
‘Mixing up primary care and casualty is a bad idea. It is not what GPs are there for,' he added.
West London has the highest rate of A&E attendances per population in England. Around 1,400 patients are seen a week at Charing Cross Hospital A&E and 650 a week at Hammersmith Hospital.
