Dr Chaand Nagpaul: 'This is a kick in the teeth for GPs'


Sorry Chaand but they've made a fool out of you and your contract negotiations. Saying that, this was always going to happen unless increased funding or pay was negotiated into the contract. Agree with 5.25 - the sooner they put the NHS out of its misery the better. This year it was saved by a mild winter but wait till the next harsh winter or flu epidemic and there will be carnage as it will become apparent that we no longer have a First World Health Service no matter how much everyone talks it up. I hope the current Government will still be in power then. What I don't understand is that we are providing the most essential of services but are unable to negotiate deals that reflect that. We might think we are smarter than a tube driver, the reality is we aren't - we and our leaders are just sad and spineless and our patients will suffer as a result of this.
