Tory GP says seven-day general practice pledge ‘completely unrealistic’


It will happen. GP will change. Goodbye continuity, hello not 5000 GPs but rather primary care staffed by Nurse Practitioners, HCAs and PAs. When this generation of 50 something GPs retire "trad" GP will cease to exist. Patient's will never see anying that knows them, referral rates will rise as will overall costs. I'm going at 55, 7 years to go. Doubt my job will be recognisable after that.
