CAMHS won't see you now

GPs now cannot afford staff they took on after MPIG

We recently had problems when move to new premises fell through.

For the last three years my two-GP practice had been planning to move to nearby premises with a neighbouring practice. However, following a dispute about how the premises would be split between us the PCT has agreed to support the other practice moving to the site on its own.

We are left working in severely undersized and inadequate premises.

In August the new premises will open only 100 yards from our outdated and cramped surgery. Inevitably, we will lose a large portion of our list.

The PCT is now saying that because funding will become cash-limited under the new contract it cannot be hopeful in funding this surgery even if I find a suitable site.

I am now feeling very abused and exploited.
