Commissioning leaders call for general practice to receive 10% of NHS funding

Comment

We have until the elecetions next year to get things sorted- a commitment to the end of political interference, proper and fairer funding of General Practice and a turnaround in attitude to the GP workforce as well as a proper public debate around the future of the NHS to get some realism into the ring. Sounds virtually impossible but we DO have to try as this is the last chance and attitudes are changing. We need to build momentum, apply local and national pressure (which is happening) and mobiise our patients. Tell them what is going on!!! It does NOT have to be a choice of go under or get out- not quite yet. This IS still potentially the best job and we have been too slow to fight for it but all is not yet lost.... Every important and influential person in the country is registered on YOUR list!! Let your patients know what is happening. Spread the word. Tell your local radio, your newspapers, your MPs, your councillors. The NHS is big news right now...
