Headline

LMCs declare 'state of emergency' amid chronic shortage of GPs

Comment

LMCs are part of the problem - if you keep crying wolf then doing what you are told you appear weak, greedy, and alarmist. Either put up or leave - the junior doctors are showing up the likes of the LMCs and GPC. For several years we've had great speeches and brilliant headline grabbing quotes from the GPC but zero action. I thought we were told to accept the latest contract as it was better than nothing! The impression given is doctors are on their own as individuals and apart from the JDC should not look for support from the LMCs,GPC or RCGP. You have to take your own individual action of RELPC (retire,emigrate,locum,private,change career). There is no help coming.
