Pulse names the country’s 50 most influential GPs


Missing are Sarah Jarvis, Christian Jessen, Ellie Cannon, Dawn Harper, Chris Steele, Hilary Jones, Pixie McKenna and Mark Porter. All GPs, and all more powerful/ influential than 90% of this list. Which makes their collective silence on the slow death of the profession really hard to take. Just once, if Sarah Jarvis tore up the script for her half hour with Jeremy Vine and said " this week, we're talking about the impending collapse of primary care", I'd take back every time I've muttered a rude word during her show. But they all stay silent and pocket their fees. Only Phil Hammond seems to say anything worth hearing, and even then his Private Eye column probably gets fewer readers than the posters in my waiting room. Power? Don't make me laugh.
