General practice should move towards becoming predominantly salaried, says Burnham


Sorry, I saw 'New Labour' opening general practice and the rest of the NHS to big corporations and profiteers and salaried doctors who had to work to minutes of throughput before continuity and breadth of generalist care of patients . What we need after the election is a commitment to better funding of NHS provided care. Local NHS practice collaborations (federations, networks) allow the autonomy of partnership with the strength of shared governance and care. Salaried doctors within practices need respect, good wages and conditions and partnerships should provide these but I don't trust companies to deliver on any of this.
