Dr Martin Seely: 'I like the Lib Dems' ideas'

I just don’t know what Labour have against GPs but they seem to want us to work all day, in the evenings and at weekends.

I just don't know what Labour have against GPs but they seem to want us to work all day, in the evenings and at weekends.

I like the Lib Dem idea of scrapping the political health targets, cutting quangos and reducing PCT management costs by a third.

But – as with Labour – I am against their proposals to scrap GP boundaries and for GPs to take back out-of-hours care.

The Tories attract me for their willingness to scrap politically motivated targets and reduce NHS administration costs. They also seem to be the only party proposing a department of public health, but I'm not happy about their willingness to involve the private sector.

Dr Martin Seely is a sessional GP in Manchester
