Hunt: The challenge is to rethink the role of primary care

Comment

I agree with Lindy Williams. Hunt's statement is a disgrace. "The first challenge is to treat the person and not the illness" That is the mantra of every quack. Yes, I know that quite a lot of people, especially in deprived areas, have problems that are as much social as they are physical. But most people go to GPs because they are ill. They want their illness to be treated in the best way possible. Hunt knows nothing about medicine (his baffled comment on TV is witness to that "is chemo usually given by injection?). His only concern seems to be to sell off the NHS as quickly as possible.
