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


The 51% included the disgruntled who have joined Federations formed by CCG/LMC members (and in some cases even the chairpersons of these organisations) with persuasion, coercion and the promise of a thick fat red juicy carrot with no stick in sight. They probably also include the privileged who have higher than normal funding and those who feel lost and have no opinion of their own. Or finally, of those stuck with premises and feel they have no way out and giving up the Contract might spell financial doom. Whatever the reasons, it's difficult to imagine that 51% of colleagues still feel that it is not yet time to walk out and would like to carry on in the present worsening climate.
