GP practices set for £1m emergency assistance fund from NHS board


The impending disaster that is to prove the eclipse of General Practice as we know it has been on the cards for years and Governments ( Scottish or UK ) do not listen. Increasing part time work --impending retirement crisis--inadequate training and recruitment-have all led to this -- What is the £1M going to be used for ---paying the patients not to be ill!!! And yesThe popular press who see us as a bunch of lazy fat cats soaking up the dosh will have a field day and we shall lose even more patient respect!!! "The Family Doctor RIP !!!!" There needs to be a salaried service utilising practices with Nurse Practitioners and GPs to do the more complex stuff in 15-20 minute appointments etc .
