stop complaining about a crisis - there isn't one ! the government has done a great job of reducing GDP spend on healthcare whilst increasing the use of the service - more for less ! we should be proud to be part of that achievement. if there is such a crisis then explain how the many FME drs that I have met who want to be GPs are being turned away or failed on CSA? or candidates who apply for a post are 'not-suitable'. I think GP Partners are talking up a crisis and are just out for more money. If there was a crisis why are we not seeing practices going under or dissapearing. Why are GP numbers not falling? where are theses thousands of GPs who are retiring?
