What about GPs who have already retired, cut hours or paid penalties because of this punitive pension tax? Do they get a refund or ability to reverse some of their decisions?
The Governments statements say this is still a consultation. Why has a decision not been taken yet?
The coalition government have nearly destroyed General Practice following on from an unsupportive Labour Government.
I think that we should do all we can to support UKIP who are the only party that gives any hope to our profession.
I will be doing my best to make sure that the sitting MPs in the Southampton area are not re-elected.
Bring on the revolution!

Please add my mane to this letter,
Dr Peter Goodall
Over the last 4 years resources going into primary care have decreased as a percentage of the NHS budget and the GP share has plummeted.
If this goverment wants our co-operation they will have to do better than beat us with a stick.
Has Jeremy Hunt forgotten that we need some carrots as well?
I look forward to just over 12 months time when I start drawing my pension - what a sad state of affairs.
We have has the 111 service in Southampton for a while.The clinical information on the paperwork is appalling. We have fedback the problems but the only answer is 'it cannot be changed, it is a centrally run service'.
I do not trust the DoH to run anything well.
I do not agree with David Bush, I do not see how a medical examiner who has not been involved in the care of the patient will be able to give an accurate cause of death without access to the patient's notes and GP. This will mean more work, bureacracy and time lost without reimbursement.
This is just another hare-brained scheme to reduce the pay, repect and influence of GPs
I thought that Labour were unsupportive of GPs but I did not realise how much damage could be done to the morale, structure and economic future of general practice in this country until this Conservative/Lib Dem coalition come to power.
The majority of GPs now do not support this government and I believe that we should use our influence to deny them a second term in 2 years time. Despite being a long-time Conservative supporter, I will be campaigning hard to remove the Conservative MP in my electorate.
