#GPnews: Jeremy Hunt's approval ratings lowest of all the top ministers

Comment

Spot on with sacred cow analogy, which bedevils all healthcare planning. If we could only break free from this fixation with "free at the point of delivery" (a concept which no other country in the world, with the possible exception of Cuba has followed)we could consider alternative systems, which put quality first. Why not consider "chambers" of consultants? GPs taking the federation concept further and setting themselves up as Health Maintainance Organisations including control of community contracts? We could even employ Health Visitors (remember them?).There are so many positive proposals we could be considering instead of being trapped in the sterile and vaccuous whingeing about "evil Tory plots".
