RCGP appointing 'ambassadors' to promote GP Forward View


I don't get this. GPFV may or maynot be a useless proposal. RCGP may or may not be wrong about working with it. But it seems the only thing that seems somethings happening. The mass resignations etc 'all chat no action' I have been reading about for past 6 months. Is it not detrimental to patient care? Those who are disgruntled with their jobs can innovate, change or go abroad. Those who have huge mortgages and other struggles : this mass resigning option may not sound as the sweetest ones! What if the government calls the GPCs bluff and let the GPs who have resigned go private? Striking is not the answer to let an irrational bully government see sense suddenly. And it affects patient care. Again like one of my previous colleagues this is probably a very naive view and personal but I am not being anonymous and just sharing my current flow of thoughts. Happy to be corrected if I am completely wrong but to me RCGP is choosing to side with the lesser and the less insane of the two evils in my opinion.
