15.09 You are right, nobody is going to stand up for us if we don't stop fighting one-another and stand up for ourselves against NHSE/CQC/GMC.

We are a scarce commodity and I doubt the public will like it much when they find out how little care the HMOs are going to be offering them for their money. Ultimately people will always want to see a GP and they will be prepared to pay a premium to avoid 111 like triage.
