GPC calls for Professor Steve Field's resignation 'forthwith'


I agree that there should be a reliable , transparent and accountable system to inspect standard of GP practices, hence identify the 'bad apples' . The fact that the head of CQC was exploiting these bad apples as example to generalise a conclusion that GPs had failed as a profession . The comment was derogatory , denigrating and disdainful and worst of all ,propagated through a well known GP-hated ,right-winged government PR media machine. It begs the question of whether this is part of the political mission to destroy general practice of this country in its current form? With some public authority and power ,the head of CQC must know his opinion can be very influential appealing to all groups in the society . Personally biased opinion with sensationalism is clearly irresponsible considering what he is representing .
