  • Another 20 GPs from EU defy Brexit to solve British recruitment woes

    John Preston's comment 20 Mar 2017 6:46pm

    "NHSE stepped in directly" says it all. 20 GPs is a drop in the ocean compared to the original deficit
    Plus those retiring and those leaving due to brexit. Add in the new drive to force practices to offer same
    Day appointments for the over 75s and there will be even fewer at the coal face.
    This government is not full of stupid people nor is Simon Stevens stupid therefore
    The only conclusion is it's another step to deliberately break general practice and the NHS.
