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


@7:06 I know. However I have a mandate to represent my voters, to have doctors' backs and to make a lot of noise, so that when the last NHS GP partnership closes and the public look around and cannot find a GP surgery to register with and have to travel miles to the closest Virgin APMS, they will know we GPs of 2014 did try to warn the public, we did try to walk out of this doomed NHS GP contract, we did try to get the BMA to ballot its members on en masse resignation or OOHs boycott, we tried EVERYTHING to save both our profession and primary care for our patients. And when Virgin and other private providers are then handed permission to charge 100%, the public will clammer come back NHS GPs!!! We are more than happy to pay a £10 copayment to see our family GP or £100 to attend A&E, we can't afford these 100% private fees!
