Hunt's GP package to go 'much further' than 2016/17 contract agreement


Trust me - it is still not going to be good news. When have the conservative party ever funded the nhs to the level that it needs. This promise is to let GPs stop mass resignation - its an imaginary carrot before a big stick hits the derriere. When a government promises 24/7 routine GP care, 24/7 routine hospital care and slashes necessary funding by 4% year on year and increases bureaucracy. When a government asks Junior doctors to work 25% more unsocial hours for 30% less pay - its same that is coming to GPs. Its the same old police - smoke and mirrors - promise and don't deliver. If you are young and able - abandon the NHS. If you are old and able - retire before your health goes to pay the price of nhs martyrdom.
