Another GP practice hands back contract amid pressures


NHSE ..''..we wrote to all patients on her behalf asking for their views on how they would like to receive GP services in the future. Their feedback was taken into account when making the decision to close the practice,'' NHSE and NHS Trusts give a damn to patient opinion. With hands in his pocket and legs stretched as he eased himself into the chair in the meeting room in the presence of LMC members and NHS Trust officials, a Comminssioner sneered at me as they attempted to close my Practice -- ''You are finished Dr Juneja, you are finished'' . Then he turned towards to the smiling NHS Offical and grinned - 'Your watch me mate' When the LMC Doctor/representative asked him about the result of the patient survery they had done, he replied - 'I don't care what patients say' I picked up on this and asked him twice more reminding him that he had spent public money doing a survey and that as a Commissioner he was responsible for the care of patients. The response was an emphatic -'I don't have to listen to patients' Hate to say that people like these who behave like gangsters occupy senior positions in NHSE and all this stupid talk of 'consulting with patients' is mere eyewash and a farce.
