Hospitals ready themselves for primary care takeover


Medway CCG tried to force a vote so that GPs could chose from 3 options 1. Do nothing - wait and watch 2. Team up with NHSE and have more influence on decision making ( though in the fine text it read- CCG will comply with what NHSE say, so virtually CCG is stuffed and so are we) 3. Team up with NHSE and hospitals - that's where you agree to being managed by Hospitals, I presume. These options were questioned and now we head for a vote in January. The problem is that an email circulated by the CCG sent last week to all GPs states clearly : Despite the outcome of the vote, CCG will have the right to choose Option 1 or 2 !!! Thank you, it's very clear - CCG's have their own interests - they are not listening to or representing GPs anymore. The Medway GP vote has already been put down as a farce which will materialize on 18.01.2015
