GPC discussing separate contracts for rural and atypical practices


The GPC need to put forward an alternative model for general practice based on copayments and insurance along the lines of countries such as Canada, New Zealand and Australia which have far better resourced health systems that also better serve the most needy and deprived. The U.K. Is bust. There is no more money available that the politicians are politically prepared to fund via taxation. A failure to do this by the BMA is a dereliction of their duties to members. The BMA is not an organisation that should be campaigning on behalf of the NHS. If the politicians and public are not prepared to fund it properly its healthcare safely it should not be the medical profession who should pay the price.
