LMCs reject plan to hand responsibility for out-of-hours care back to GPs

Comment

Basically by committing to the free at the point of contact NHS primary care has sacrificed it's main negotiating position.i have worked in Australia and New Zealand and charging a fee if anything enhances the doctor patient relationship rather than diminish it. The GPC has to represent its members interest and pave the way for us to leave by suggesting consultation charges and showing leadership on leaving the NHS can you you imagine virgin rail running a train service and being told it cannot charge passengers and being criticised for restricting access the Tories can't have it both ways the GPC showed weakness by avoiding the no confidence vote who do they think they can impress,Tory ministers,!!!
