Two surgeries to close in seven-day GP access area


Just recevied a letter from the Head of Primary Care refusing list closure. A valuable piece of advice given to me is that ' I should not support a colleague ( who is in danger of being struck off and needs some supervision) and concentrate on my work. Another GP who tried to support the Colleague received some simlar upsetting advice from NHSE and has since withdrawn support. Is that a normal and an acceptable argument coming from KPCA/NHS England who should be worried about supporting every Doctor and promoting retention??? ( I understand that PCA and NHS England are one Agency now because communications sent to NHSE are now being responded to by the Primary Care Agency.) I think i need to keep in touch with how these structures have changed as I did get a surprise this time.
