Chickens coming home to roost ... or...The sins of the father descending on the heads of the children comes to mind. Why in Gods name should doctors have to work like this? For how much longer will GPs go on blaming politicians/ increasing demand / and reduced income AND YET, carry on working regardless and be receptive to even more work being added on for nothing in return and take more abuse, just to keep the system afloat , as its their duty to do so! Where is the independence in the term ` Independent ` Contractor ? Do the work to fit only what is being paid for. Its the Govt`s responsibility to manage the rest. Whatever happens, it should have to be a system with equality for all. It should be an all Partners type of system, or an all Salaried system( much as I hate that). Anyway, as soon as the election is over, all promises will be bined by the politicians and it will be open season on the GPs again..and the work will carry on as usual regardless.
