100 GPs sign letter on Pulse telling Prime Minister general practice is 'not safe'


Thank you to 11.47. I pointed out this contradiction earlier today and had my comment silently removed. Thank you for spotting the same. I am bothered by the power status that Dr Beer has aquired - by virtue of media, rather than peer, approval it seems. Good luck to Dr Beer if she felt that sustaining her practice was the right thing to do. That does not make her my hero as I believe it was absolutely the wrong thing to do. If I had been in her shoes I would have said “OK, let it fold.” That sort of action might have helped to highlight the very real crisis that general practice is in. Her practice’s plight was an early warning alarm that sadly, was silenced. If she chooses to be a local hero then fine that is up to her and I respect her decision. What I do not respect is this media ordained authority and leadership which she now seems to have.
