Nuclear option: Rise in practices seeking to close or merge


I think this is part of the DOHs long plotted plan. They are making General Practice so unpleasant that no new GPs will want to take on a partnership. That will be the death of traditional practice, leaving the DOH to pursue whatever master plan they have. It involves having all new GPs salaried. The only thing to be revealed is who they will be salaried to. I think they have miscalculated the shortage of GPs their policies will create.
