GPs say nothing has changed
Four in five GPs say increased spending on the NHS has brought no noticeable improvement in their area, according to a BMA survey of 146 GPs.
BMA chair Dr Ian Bogle warned the NHS was facing a 'crisis of confidence', as excessive national targets were preventing money from reaching the frontline.
He said the proliferation of targets had created mutual mistrust between doctors, managers and the Government.
'Morale in the medical profession will continue to ebb unless the Government trusts doctors to do what is best for patients,' he said.
