More than 500 GP practices have closed in last five years, 'stark' Government figures reveal

Comment

I have just resigned, and NHSEng have just closed our 2 rural branch surgeries. Even now, the local, public anger is directed at the "bad GPs" rather than the underfunding and recruiting problems which led to this desperate and unhappy act. Why will no-one accept that State-funded Healthcare is expensive but cheaper than the alternative. (which is a re-do of Winston Churchill's famous quote about democracy being better than the alternatives). The international stats for NHS funding as percentage of GDP are still dreadful. Wake up Daily Mail readers.. this is your country, and anything you don't like is your own fault.
