Most GPs ‘drowning in work’, says NICE chair


Reality bites . The cruel intentions of this government is never clearer: (1) This fallacy of efficiency saving epitomises its plan to substantially reduce its commitment to fund health service. (2) No new money unless one is willing to do all sorts to help these politicians to win more votes in next year general election e.g. £50 millions (3) Waves after waves of funding cut with ridiculous workload inflicted misery and desperation in all of us, GPs as well as hospital colleagues . Then the government exploited on our desperation , exhaustion and grief. ' Please leave if you want to, help yourself at the exit door. We can always find cheaper alternative'. (4) So if we 'behaved' , the government will give us a salary (do not have high hope about that) and of course, we have to work 7 days. This will happen post apocalypse of the current NHS and a 'new order' is to be restored by the government and all its viceroys. (5) As the government will fund much less in health , private medicine will rise , both in GPs and secondary care. After all , many will have stopped believing in national health service of any form by then,(exactly what it wants anyway ) (6) Yes. The spirit of protesting against this government in any form should be supported.Unfortunately , these politicians are not intimidated by that and probably prepare to 'sacrifice' the votes of most health professionals, apart from those who always want to ingratiate with this hierarchy . (7) All I know is one thing: this government only deserves one and only one thing- a full bankruptcy of trust and credibility . (8) One thing I keep asking myself everyday - has this government brought out the 'demons' in all of us giving up our original values and virtues?
