Headline

200,000 patients displaced after rapid rise in GP surgery closures last year

Comment

The Stop Practice Closure Campaign might as well be called the Prolong the Misery Campaign. It might be a popular mantra amongst patients and cardigans and GP's in denial but so called leaders should be having a mature debate with GP's about the wisdom of this approach in the face of current workforce and financial challenges. I hope that the LMC conference might go some way towards this.Unfortunately, I suspect we will have to see GP's financially ruined before they accept the futility of struggling on. Start planning your exit strategy now. Ditch the contract comrades!
