NHS Health Checks no more effective than usual practice, study finds


Acquiescing to easy income streams over the last 10yrs have become a characteristic of gp independent contractors.It mostly flies in the face of their sense of integrity which has been lost because of a political masterstroke ie tying it in with the maintainence of income-not an increase.As a result objectivity has disappeared out of the widow on many occasions.This has given even more heavy calibre ammunition to the uneven handed and politically motivated newspapers Little wonder gp morale is now lower than a limbo stick.The news that a small number of "leading gps" have spoken out in favour of privatization is another own goal.I see no evidence of our royal college,the BMA, or LMCS.taking a strong stance on any of this--who do they represent-not me!!!!.It sure is lonely out here!!!
