GP practices to reduce routine appointments on junior doctor strike days

Comment

We respect Dr Dean Eggitt for showing solidarity with the junior doctors strike by reducing routine appointments as hospital trusts cancel routine procedures. We GPs were never given a ballot against an unworkable contract. Instead we continue mourn more sudden deaths among overworked NHS GP partners. These GP partners will be remembered. More overworked NHS GP partners have died suddenly between October and November 2015 of heart attacks or heart failure. RIP and the BMA still has not balloted GPs on industrial action (work to rule, unsigned mass resignation, strike days, boycott cremation form signing, anything!) against an unworkable slave contract. RIP NHS GP partner Dr Brian Keighley died suddenly November 2015, aged 68. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/local-news/tributes-long-serving-former-balfron-6825789 RIP NHS GP partner Dr Mukesh Patel died suddenly of a heart attack October 2015, aged 59. http://www.granthamtarget.co.uk/Popular-GP-59-died-hospital-following-cardiac/story-28062631-detail/story.html#AGMeT8pMHZPQK3it.01 RIP NHS GP partner Dr Jenny Wess died suddenly of heart failure October 2015, aged 52. http://www.newsnorthwales.co.uk/news/153794/overton-on-dee-gp-s-death-leaves-husband-and-children-devastated.aspx#.Vllh5W0s5FE.facebook RIP NHS GP partner Dr Hameed Khan died suddenly of a heart attack October 2015, aged 68. http://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/13336986.Tributes_to__kind_and_compassionate__GP/?ref=fbshr
