GPs to be employees of new integrated care organisations, under Labour plans to integrate care


Why are politicians mouths always open in photos ? Oh yes, that's because the only voice they're interested in listening to is their own. At least they're being up front about wanting to do a complete top-down NHS reorganisation again, ahead of the general election., unlike Tories last time round. Painfully obvious that Labour isn't going to be in government so I wouldn't get too stressed, my colleagues !!! They can say whatever they want, allow yourself an ironic laugh at their expense ! Our federations are getting up and running and our main focus so far has been empowering individual practices to reject unfunded / inappropriate work, wherever it may come from - secondary care / private Consultants / allied health professionals / schools / employers / patients. The BMA / GPC workload document has actually been quite a help here. Being more militant and defending our core contract duties is actually easier than you may think.
