General practice should move towards becoming predominantly salaried, says Burnham


Its easy to say - you will all become salaried. There ar younger GP`s who don`t want partnerships. What happens to us partners. Most of us own our buildings,and essentially run small businesses. Where will the money come from to buy us all out?Even twith the goodwill clause , they would still have to pay for our buildings, or we would keep them/sell them for other use . A few will go under , as we see starting to happen, but the majority won`t anytime soon. If pressurised there would be a revolt at some point surely, with GP`s leaping from the BMA/RCGP to an alternative union .
