What can be done to solve the GP recruitment crisis?


For an extra £20 per person per year, the whole of GP could be radically upgraded. That would bring in £120,000 to my 6000 patient practice. The vast majority would be spent employing new staff and a new partner if we coulf find one. TWENTY QUID PER YEAR! By trying to claw back a couple of quid per patient per year thye are ensuring the whole thing will collapse.
