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


Not that long ago going on strike was an option for the profession... This idea was scrapped as deemed too risky and unsafe At least going on strike leaves the public with a diminished service for a static period of time - a day or two - no more.... However when you lose valuable partnerships, which is happening throughout England and Wales (particularly) you have forever lost what you had. Corporate organsiations talk about the loss of high quality intellectual and functional capacity... This is what this is. As each practice hands in their contract you have irrevocably lost something essential, vital and of great value... There is no going back Whose eyes and ears need prising open...? Enough... When is enough enough?
