  • If primary care were already salaried the system would have collapsed years ago. The salaried option means the end of innovation, independent thinking, and professionalism. It will be bad for the profession and awful for patients who will be dealing with under skilled robots following algorithms devised by people who believe in 'best practice' who do not understand the human condition.

  • Brillaint. Im so looking forward to being micromanaged by a History of Arts graduate with a 2:2 from Preston poly who will be appointed to manage me.

    You can take a running jump. I will not work for this system, and will go abroad. Bye bye.
