GP practices to receive 0.28% funding uplift from April

Comment

Jeremy Hunt talks about "the market" but still does not understand it!! In open markets, if you treat people/organisations like crap and pay them sub-cost for work.....they simply pull out of the market or leave the profession. The writing is on the wall.....NOBODY wants to be a GP anymore. Unless we start "waterboarding orange-suited GP trainees" we simply won't have a GP service anymore. You can't make people choose GP anymore even if you can successfully bully those who unfortunately made the mistake of entering GP land and who are too far down the road to turn back or change career. Hunt's remedial understanding of market forces combined with his disciplinarian view of the public sector will trigger this collapse. It is like the Titanic...sinking will be a mathematical certainty.
