University practices consider closing lists to students in order to survive


Very sad. Yes these practices major on health promotion to a young inteligent group and are the foreseeable front line casualty of a shift to elderly chronic disease management admission avoidance policy. However the lesson for us all is fail to support our colleagues existance and the rules will change to wipe us out at some point. Neglecting the health of this group of mainly young " instant consumerism" patients will drive up unscheduled attendances Walk in Centres and AED- all of which will cost the taxpayer more than adequately resourcing the full variety of general practice primary care.
