Let's show the same mettle as consultants
Congratulations to our perceptive consultant colleagues on the decisive rejection of their contract, despite heavy selling by the now discredited BMA.
The offer of more money did not blind them to the underlying agenda of the replacement of professional independence by politically driven targets and subservience to the swollen ranks of NHS bureaucrats.
The same agenda, the erosion of freedom and clinical independence, underlies the GP contract. I hope that my GP colleagues are able to show the same mettle as the consultants and preserve their dignity and that of the profession by a resounding rejection in the second ballot.
