This GP cabal of succubii feeding on the taxpayers' NHS has to be cauterized NOW. * Non-NHS employee GP controlled and run CCGs distribute £65 000 000 000 of NHS E funding, are pushing Hospitals into financial crisis by favouring the cut-price Private sector, using NHS ICUs as back-up. * CCGs being investigated over too close connections between NEDs and Private Providers * Evidence of bloated 'new' practice centres having been constructed, now lying only partly used. * Retention of the ''8 day notice to quit'' a practice on an ipse dixit basis. * Overzealous use of ''Three DNAs and you're OUT.'', without effective appeal. Outsourcing to the private sector of such an obviously integral part of our NHS is: outmoded; anachronistic; not 'evidence-based'; and indicative of the top-down attitudes of far too many operating in and around the increasingly lidless honeypot of our NHS. If GPs won't accept salaried status, NHS E should set up and run its own integrated GP Practices - starting with 24 hour, 365 day facilities attached to A & E Departments.
