GP practice taken over by trust to ensure its survival


6% in NI. Was 11% in 2004. [ NIGPC report few weeks ago]. Almost a 50% cut with a 50% increase in contacts. Obviously cherished and nurtured and valued by the DOH. We are mugs. But Practice managers think and the rest of the country [ starting with the DM] think we had it coming. So it is time to leave. They can manage without us I am sure.
