GP partnerships will be gone in ten years, says NHS England official


I disagree with the opinion expressed above but I am prepared to put it to the test. Ask patients what they want (including the silent majority rather than just listening to the vociferous minority) and spell out the practical options - local surgery, continuity of care and normal opening times v distant surgery, any time but no continuity. Should a fully-informed public choose the latter, it'd be interesting to see what happens to GP recruitment.
