Ten-minute consultations 'must go', says NHS England director


Being a NHS GP partner is like a double edged sword. You are self employed so exempt from the EWTD of 40 hours but at the same time employed by govt and subject to unilateral variation of the contract with a trade union whose hands are tied up in legal knots and rules. The only way out is individual or en masse resignation from a contract that will either drive you to an early grave or bankrupt you.
