Half of GPs willing to resign NHS contracts in protest at state of general practice


some us didn't get get a chance to do survey - i agree to resign. this is the sort of survey that should be rolled out to all GPs. talking to colleagues i'd say at least 50% willing to resign. it would be interesting to see the age split - as i have a feeling that younger GPs are more militant. ultimately the only answer is to split health service provision with a smaller non-comprehensive NHS backed up with a insurance backed health system with contract between providers (us) and the patient directly. we need to get rid of state involvement including nhse, cqc, nice etc and reign in GMC to get back general practice on track. merging only buys time but the direction of travel is downhill until demand is addressed.
