'New deal' threatens existence of general practice, BMA declares


Media won't give us the time of day. 100k great pension no evening or weekend work we're greesy lazy and stupid coz we can't diagnose every diseas with a support group in time and we don't care either. 50+ hours a week, many more staffing OOH work, indemnity at7000 and rising 200 + consultationas a week, 43 million more in last few years with no resourse, every Tom Dick or Harry GANFYD, pension been screwed for those under 50, toxic political environment, patient needing social care and a shoulder to cry on have nowhere but us to turn. They don't know the truth and it isn't being communicated propperly by anyone. I'm 46, I DO NOT WANT TO BE A GP ANYMORE IN THIS ENVIRONMENT, I WANT TO BE A DOCTOR WHO IS A GP AGAIN. I also want a commensurate wage for what I do and at less than a fiver take home per consultation I'm cheap. Pay me properly, pay more people like me to do the job and they'll come and Hunt can have what the f78k he likes
