It is time for the BMA to ballot GPs on mass resignation


No other system is as cost-effective overall as the NHS. I don`t agree with the introduction of any form of co-payment as this will change the ethos of the NHS. Instead of talking to Australian doctors, you should talk to Australian patients. Primary care does need to attract a greater percentage of the overall funding and there is a huge opportunity for systems` improvement and better integration which can improve cost-effectiveness even more. But under no circumstances should we try to erode the spirit of the NHS which is free at the point of need-this is really special and unique and we should feel very proud about it.
