The abolition of practice boundaries is complete twaddle


Totally agree with the article. Patients' demands are rising exponentially, not helped at all by the half baked ill thought out promises all the political parties make to get votes! I do not have 5 minutes in my day sometimes to go have a wee, let alone visit someone 40 miles away. Gps are expected to do more and more in their working day and quite often 12 hour days aren't enough to finish everything that needs doing. This is not about monopolising the system, it's about practicality and sensible care. Let's ask the politicians at Westminister to promise to visit people in Newcastle as a given... Everyday.... Then ask primary care to abolish boundaries! Total load of crap from the government yet again!
