GPs told to continue working on retired QOF indicators to 'demonstrate good patient care'


It is time for us GPs to behave like true Independent Contractors. We do not have to stay in the NHS at any cost. There are a number of other systems. It is time for us, through the GPC, to say exactly what we will do and at what price. You know what if that does not suit the DOH, we should just tell them to get lost. After all, if you analyse this properly, we will always make a reasonable living seeing 35+ patients a day, as long as we are prepared to charge whoever pays, a proper costing. I cannot understand why we GPs are so slavish in a system that is so under doctored.
