Should I worry about being trapped in a sinking practice?


The writing is on the wall for smaller GP practices, unless something drastic changes to government policy and payments. If the government can make giving Flu Jabs less profitable with the signing of a contract with Aggressive national pharmacies, think of the consequences when they actively get vindictive. I'd have some clause in the partnership agreement to at least ensure some way of sharing redundancy payments in lieu of not being able to recruit a replacement partner.
