‘I understand why GPs feel so disenchanted’

Comment

Please can we stop placing the GP at the centre of Primary Care. The term needs to be rebranded as "Generalist Pilot" ie someone who can guide the patient's journey not be there at the the patient's demand to see them. Yes, use the scarce resource wisely but unless the interface between public and Primary Care changes i.e. make contact with the service (telephone, Email, self help) away from a demand to "see" your named GP etc. I fear for the NHS survival and the quicker it is dismantled the better for all of our mental and physical health.
