Headline

NHS England to debate further support for 'intense pressures' GPs face following Pulse campaigning

Comment

11.43 says mutiny is imminent. What are GPs waiting for? If thousands refuse to participate in Outside Boundary Scheme, FFT, Named Doctors for >75 and all the other hair brained schemes that Jeremy is introducing, the government would be powerless. Practices who are confident that they are providing a safe and quality service could refuse to allow CQC over the door. They can't withdraw the contract from thousands and you will get all the support you need from the patients who will enjoy a better service. And all this coming with a General Election next year. In other words there are plenty ways of taking industrial action without withholding services from the public.
