GPs 'excluded' from consultations over secret plans for general practice


STP's are an oxymoron as you can't have transformation and sustainability in the same sentence. Something has to give in order for there to be change. The drivers of the plans have too many conflicted interests about preservation of their own organisations. The reason GP's have been omitted is because there is the expectation they will just absorb all the unfunded work in the spirit of collaboration after it is a done deal! The ultimate goal is to make general practice a fully salaried scheme as part of larger accountable care organisations. The role of the Dr Findlay family doctor will go to be replaced by an American style pile them high all you can eat faceless financially driven heartless business. Why we try and copy the US is beyond me other than to open the door through the TTIP to denationalising the NHS, oh that's right Jeremy supports that ideology as he wrote it in Direct Democracy!!
