18,000-practice set to close as GP partners hand back contract


i'm sure a doh 'spokesperson' will be wheeled out to say surgeries open and close all the time, government pouring money in, 5YF endorsed by RCGP, GPs valuable contribution etc etc the press will blame GPs for being able to retire ('golden' pensions), lazy (cutting sessions), refusing to work for the glorious public (choosing not to commit career suicide with partnerships), and being ill (not resilient, wrong type of GP) personally i welcome it - the public need to decide do they want to fund healthcare properly or are they happy to watch as their services disappear. this is in effect what Chris Hopson was basically saying. fund it or lose it.
