An LMC's open letter: 'Established GPs are leaving for other countries'


Unfortunately none of this seems to make it to national press. Only this week there was another Daily Fail article banging on about how much GPs are overpaid since the magical contract we managed to wangle in our favour. Unfortunately people believe this and somehow think that GP is underfunded because we take all the cash. Why doesn't this letter make it to the Daily Hate Mail? Because the press only wants to confirm peoples prejudices and in this case its hatred/jealousy of the perceived rich doctor taking all their taxes and spending it on golf clubs despite not doing any work.
