Wilfully destruction of local practice model continues unabated. Media and public missing the biggest NHS tragedy. Tell your patients what is being done to you and about the utter lack of any credible rescue. Slaithwaite community have gone to war for our practice. Have held off PMS cuts for now. Other communities standing up for their surgeries. Londonwide LMCs standing up too. Time for action now. FamilyDoctorSOS.co.uk has the tale.
Paralell universe? Scrap the internal market and save £8-10B per year. That's more than the total spend on GP services.
"The bulk .......is about supporting existing practices." Needs extra sentence. "Which is why we are pushing full-steam ahead with ruinous PMS and MPIG funding cuts nationally."
Is this an April Fool? Reminiscent of the Life of Brian scene when Caeser is addressing the angry mob.

Need to fight back. Action speaks louder than words. www.familydoctorSOS.co.uk and NHS Survival are trying to help.
I feel bit better having read this great letter. Nonetheless this governent wont listen. We must also "do" something. Public aching for the BIG debate re. future of NHS & social care. NHS Survival has right approach I feel and GPs can provide the key role in starting the debate in communities. If you have time please visit www.familydoctorSOS.co.uk ...and add your surgery to our map of "distress." Onwards & Upwards. Paul
