BMA chair: GPs' arguments for 11% share of funding are 'artificial'


I'm not sure of the logic behind Porter's comments. All the work is moving into the community, surely that should be where the money goes to as well? Of course, he also forgets the context of a time of a GP recruitment and retention crisis. Either way, his comments lead to two major problems. 1. He is clearly acutely unaware or uninterested in the problems in General Practice at present. 2. His comments have large negative impact on the GPC's mandate for GPs, and sabotages Nagpul's own authority. Either way, my resignation from the BMA is looking more and more likely. If I retain my membership, I would hope to see some much needed new leadership at the top of the pyramid.
