'The GPs who don't even know your name'? These patients would beg to differ...


The last few governments and their politicians have blindly(or been advised by ex gps who cannot stomach the front line) to impose contracts on us,constantly changing them due to their failures despite us trying to keep on top. Why should we be blamed for the failure of their plans. It is Wednesday evening and I have already worked 36 hours' this week,I have done four joint injections two minor surgery ops,done 5 surgeries with booked 10 minute appointments and 1 with urgent 5minute appointments,not to mention telephone calls,letters,it,repeat prescriptions,checking mail and X-rays and laboratory tests and taking a medical student on Tuesday morning. After 29 years I still enjoy the job and do know most of my regular patients and their families and many of the names of my partners patients also. I strongly believe in the NHS and have committed 35 years of my life to provide a good service which drains at times. When I finally retire I certainly won't miss the whingeing and whining politicians and journalists in this decaying country of Britain(once Great)and milked and laughed at by the 1st,2nd and 3rd world.
