GPs urged to focus on occupational asthma
Dr Prakash Kawar is just one among many GPs who have told Pulse they believe they will be left with no option but to opt out of providing a childhood immunisation service.
Dr Kawar, a GP in St James', London, said he is almost certain his practice will have missed out as a result of the rule change. 'If we do miss the target then, of course, we will opt out,' he said.
Not providing the immunisation service would be 'the sensible option', he added.
Dr Kawar urged the Department of Health to reconsider its position and understand GPs' frustration.
'We're at breaking point,' he said. 'The Government needs to listen to GPs. We're the people at the forefront of the primary care service.'
