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

Comment

In my area 6 practices all closed and moved into one all singing all dancing fit for purpose health centre. Are these figures included?? (6 closed - 1 opened) I believe we are witnessing, once again, the dreaded scaremongering tactics to panic the masses. Lots of GP's are against "Tory (Mail)" privatisation, but a hell of a lot of them are looking to maximise personal income through selling out their GMS contracts to large "Private" Health companies for personal financial gain. Talk about pot and kettle!! Everyone in the country recognises that the NHS is just not affordable, but no one has the courage to take it face on for fear of losing votes so instead there are lots of behind the scenes scheming going on in order to undermine the whole system whilst placing the blame firmly on the shoulders of others, namely in this case the nasty GP's. The Titanic was Unsinkable, the NHS???? Man the lifeboats, GP's and children first!!
