Austerity and what it means for practices

Comment

The profession needs to adopt a system which works better for the public and healthcare workers. One which is enticing ours. How about the Australian part state part private (and pretty much every other western country which has a better system)? In the mean time, given the state of denial of the above and how to deal with it, we will continue to lose our healthcare workers. Meanwhile those that are paying for the NHS (ie a large part by the middle class) will be forced to pay twice. Once for poor quality and ineptly managed state healthcare (where you have to wait over a month to see your GP or many months for a hospital specialist) AS WELL AS having to pay privately rather than risk this. How fair is that??? It's communist mantra. Everyone must suffer and get poor care! Why????
