Clean record no longer misconduct defence
'Supporting the Pulse manifesto is essential if we are to maintain the rightful prominence of general practice in the NHS and society as a whole and to face the challenges of the 21st century.'
Dr Jamie Dalrymple, Norwich
'The manifesto addresses many of the most important issues that are concerning GPs at present. We need an NHS that is led by doctors for patients not one led by managers for politicians.'
Dr Robert Morley, Birmingham
'Safeguarding core values is vital. We need elections for a credible and independent clinical leader. The primary care tsar is a political appointment and the RCGP has lost its way and lost its credibility among grassroots GPs.'
Dr Nick Summerton, Hull
'The manifesto is a wish-list that wouldn't be out of place on any negotiating table. The call to scrap Choose and Book is the only thing I would question.'
Dr Gillian Braunold, Kilburn, north-west London
