New GP contract to include seven-day access requirement, PM announces

Comment

This will come as a "voluntary" trojan horse but make no mistake, it is an imposition of sorts. Defund Gms and force practices to take a new contract with in effect a return to 24 hour responsibility. I'm sure this will be partly funded by qof and abandoned des. A few greedy sods will jump head first, some will be forced to in order to survive and many will simply close up shop.im 44 year old, in a partnership, worked my socks off to develop a great practice over the last 20 years and am getting screwed by circumstances beyond my control and seeing it all crumble. V sad but I don't see a future for myself if this goes ahead. I'm sure most feel that way and only those who have no other choice would want to stay in UK General practice.
