Tens of thousands of GPs on brink of early retirement, BMA finds


The people in power ( not necessarily the government ) require primary care to fail. You cannot successfully privatise health care with an effective and low cost public funded service in position . It must be allowed to collapse . Large health corporations will move in and fill the gap ; much more expensively of course . The new health bill and current provision for general practice all points to this scenario. Anyone who has sense recognises this and is getting ready to bail. To prevent this the general public need to be aware of our worth. Judging by the comments made on the BBc health section ot the news everyone feels we have a simple job and are over paid for doing it . The truth of course is very different but corporate owned media will not put this forward. The BMa need to show what a fantastically cost effective service we provide .
