Dr Maureen Baker: 'We are calling for a new deal for general practice'


Ivan Benett | Salaried GP | 05 October 2014 9:30am some fair points and I agree a salaried model will suit many GPs but not all - you need to incorporate an option for GPs to work in different ways if they want to i.e. still be independent or even privately. You need to be more inclusive and not assume everyone wants to be salaried. Why not have a nationalised NHS which is smaller in scope i.e. rationalised with limited conditions covered eg cancer, a&e and therefore cheaper. The rest could be private eg cosmetic, fertility treatment etc GPs can then choose to work wholly in the smaller NHS as salaried or only in the private sector or a bit of both. It will keep all GPs happy?
