'Corner shop' GPs should expand and employ hospital consultants, says NHS England


As GPs, we are constantly being lectured to...receiving "wisdom" from NHS managers, the media and politicians. All these groups seem to have an astonisting insight into "what is best" for GPs despite never actually having any experience of General Practice or the issues involved. It is rather like being a theoretical "jumbo" pilot having never actually flown. Most of these "conversations" are unidirectional rather than meaningful dialogue. Until proper dialogue takes place and GPs voices are heard, respected and integrated into a shared vision, the "mess" that is General Practice will sadly continue.
