  • 6.55pm there are plenty of Partnerships available if you want to try this yourself and get your £200k.

    Meanwhile in the real world I'm having to think of the real possibility of my partners jacking it all in and all are coming up to being eligible to retire.

  • There are a number of online sites that we could use to send out a mass resignation letter. Just Google online petition or online resignation letter.

    Hamish Meldrum did this in 2001, but I don't think our current BMA representatives will do it, for whatever reason.

    The online letter would be automatically sent out to all GPs' NHS email addresses. It can also be optimised for social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Pulse Magazine could also help.

    The letter of resignation would go along the lines of stating what GPs would do e.g. Number of consultations per year per patient for the £126. Consultations over and above this limit would be charged directly to patients. The letter also should outline the proposal to develop our own private health insurance package that could be set up using any number of insurance companies.

    I'm afraid I'm too tired and worn out to do this myself, besides I shall shortly be retiring anyway
