GPs operating in an 'unforgiving climate of blame', says GPC leader in defiant speech


Wake up, take a step back and let's be objective ……there will never be a glass big enough for the water pouring in and overflowing. This is the ‘me, me, me, now, now, now’ generation not the 'sorry to trouble you doc, would you mind' early days of the NHS. Either we cut demand dramatically and stop medicalisng non-medical conditions, or fund it adequately with massive (unaffordable) tax increases or a private insurance scheme partly based on peoples choices, and responsibility and accountability – of which there is zero currently. There needs to be a blunt and honest debate that is being hindered by the NHS holy cow.
