Four practices set to close leaving 10,000 patients displaced


We saw that our practice was unsustainable. We closed it and moved on . The area team thought there was capacity within the surrounding practices to absorb our 6500 list . Clearly this was not the case .East Brighton is a tough place to work. Our practice had been there for 100 years or so .There was no support to keep our practice going , because of the costs involved , No one had the money to take it over, nor was any realistic offer made to for its continuation . We were the tip of the ice burg . Many more will close . I now work as a locum , GP up the coast and as a Prison GP which I Love . Free of the maddness of Partnership and the impending doom of all the non medical crap , I have done Mindfullness retreats to come to terms with the abuse I suffered as a partner and feel much better in myself as a result . Live in the now . And breathe
