GPs in shock over CQC ‘risk’ ratings


Leading figures like Prof Field and Dr Gerada live in a world far from real general practice. Sadly desire to be in news is harming the welfare of patients deprived and elderly . We need pragmatism and not misguiding of the DOH and politicians for the individual agendas. Investment in premises, excessive Micromanagement of performances, changing social attitudes of younger medics, explosion in part timers, Locum financial rates resulted in low moral. Continuity is nearly dead, demand is spiralling out of controll. Time for the politicians, patient groups, profession and public to wake up and work together. NHS is entering on death bed, it's only a matter of time. No sound bites just Action to safeguard the great institution in the world.
