Is this the way forward for general practice?


does it really matter? a lot of GPs have already made their minds up and are arranging their exits. it's just when and how many are going. i don't think the GPC or RCGP are bothered about propping up GPs as a profession - their goal is to prop up primary care and that's what this package is about. I suspect in the future primary care will consist of super practices and federations only - managed by less GPs with teams of PAs, pharmacists etc. It's not what I signed up for but that's progress for you. The impression is either you subscribe to this vision or get out.
