GPs should be offered £1bn to improve premises and open 8 'til 8, says NHS England-backed report


'London does contribute over 35% of GDP' No it just hoovers up people and money from the rest of the UK, contributing to our grossly distorted economy. London simply could not exist as an international centre if commerce without England's other towns and cities that supply it with skilled staff and resources, it is in no way self sustaining. ‘I think London is much more challenging on the issues of the estate in primary care than the rest of the country' This is complete and utter nonsense, the real primary care crisis is happening in regions that cannot recruit because of lack of training capacity. London will never be short of doctors because for some inexplicable reason people want to work there and live in grossly over-priced shoe-boxes. Fortunately there is more than enough cash sloshing around the place to fund GP premises, especially in roads where the residents live in million pound houses. London already gets far more of our tax money per capita for the NHS, it's long overdue that the people of the UK were treated equally! London should be getting less not more.
