Revealed: Sixty GP practices across the country facing imminent closure

Comment

Una, whilst I normally enjoy your fiery version of what the GPC should be doing, some of what you says is complete and utter garbage. Firstly you eschew the idea that the govt has no more money, so that privitisation should come in to the fore. Then you go and spread the idea that GPs should be lobbying the govt for more money. I'm sorry but you are wrong. If the govt can increase MP pay by 11%, manager pay by 6.1%, bail out RBS, build a £60 billion railway track, then it sure as hell can pay for understaffed and wavering doctors and nurses on the frontline. Then you perpetually fabricate a conspiracy theory about IMGs despite the high court ruling, AND continue to do huge damage to the reputation of the profession. You are doing damage by saying that it is okay for sub standard trainees to challenge the college because of their skin colour. You are in effect saying, screw the CSA, just let anyone through as a GP. Considering there is no decent alternative, I'm sorry to say, but that is a dangerous idea, and will damage the profession even more in the long run when substandard GPs give more credence to Daily Fail propaganda. The IMG issue is not even on debate here, which further shows your lack of clarity on the issue at hand and shows your desire to spin your issues to the fore - something that Cameron, Blair and the rest of them do particularly well.
