GP voters seem to have short memories
Many GPs seem to have suffered amnesia, according to the results of the recent Pulse opinion poll ('GPs' love for Labour is lost')
Yes, I am fed up with central control and constant reform but I don't hear any party promising less of either. Was it not Conservative Ken Clarke who started it all with the 'purchaser-provider split' in the early 90s when he doubled the administration costs of the NHS? The same Ken Clarke who accused GPs of 'fingering their wallets' rather than caring about patients.
I can think of two large injections of resources into general practice since the NHS started - the 1966 Charter and the nGMS contract - both under Labour.
