BMA criticises decision to cut GP trainee pay


Recently a very senior GP Partner was overheard saying "if Department of Health imposes a contractual requirement for all GPs to dance naked for one hour in front of their surgeries ,the only plea that BMA GPC will take would be that they should be allowed to cover their genitals with leaves as it may offend some patients." I remarked they would surely go on strike ......? "No chance my friend" he turned towards me and with a sparkle in his eye whispered "even if they strike the turn out will be only 21 percent as most of GPs would argue that they cant strike as patient services would suffer and Daily Mail would be really upset and one hour of dancing is good for health any way and may be a new QOF for this will bring much needed extra funding for patient care " sorry if any one finds it offensive please report to 111 who would send an emergency ambulance ,after all they get paid more dealing with per patient than you moron GPs.
