GPs face long wait until retirement as review omits them from age-related 'risk' list


Thank you Jim and @0:03. I enjoyed reading both your posts. I am trying to show NHS GPs the path back into private practice as was once the case for all GPs before the NHS. While they build up a private list, there will be lean years followed by years of plenty as the public gradually accept that quality medical care costs, just like a quality education and just like in Australia, the government will continue to reimburse health care for the poor or elderly. We are in a transition period. I know many NHS GPs fear change and perhaps they should shadow a private GP to see how it can be done as it was done once upon a time.
