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


The situation is unsustainable as we as GPs just simply work harder. Consultants do not see more than their number in a clinic and do not do extra clinics unless paid. We should reduce our capacity in line with reduced funding ie offer less appointments, take time out of clinics to do admin, CQC appraisal etc And ask patients to go to AE instead. We have been keeping working harder to keep NHS costs down but hospitals and trust generate more work and income and hence keep getting more funding.
