GPC paper declares workforce 'crisis point' as training places increase by only 80


I agree with 11.01 and 11.16. The last time things got this bad - in 2002 - we had the nGMS contract: and things improved: with a reducing number of GP principals, almost anything was better than the old Red Book! This time round we appear to have a government without even the limited foresight present in 2002 (when Labour could blame the previous Conservative government for the problem) : I retired on 31.3.14 and was glad to be in a position to do so - but I am now getting seriosly concerned about my care as a future patient!
