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

Comment

@8:52 pm. Thanks. It is almost as though government is saying thank you GPs for giving up your private practice to work for the NHS 66 years ago but now this social experiment is unworkable and on the verge of bankruptcy so we would like you to go back to being private GPs again. The 60 year experiment failed as we daren't charge our voters co payments to keep the NHS solvent even though the costs of medicine, treatments have climbed and the number of elderly living longer with chronic diseases has grown by the millions. So here is how to go back to private practice. Sorry we bothered you. http://drunacoales.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/nhs-gps-are-now-asking-me-how-to-be.html
