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


They came for the single-handed practices, but I wasnt a single-hander, so I did nothing.. Then they came for the small corner-shop practices, but I wasnt a small corner-shop practice, so I did nothing.. Then they came for me, And nobody did nothing... If 18,000 - 25,000 in a rural area like Banbury is folding up, the supermarket / Hub model is NO INSURANCE of a viable future The GP crisis is a national disaster and nothing short of a total disgrace. Why, when the (quite rightful) Junior Doctors action is mentioned in dispatches, does no-one point out that there is not a general practitioner in this country who wants to continue working under the current yoke which we carry. The public do NOT know what is happening, until they find the shutter down permanently at their practice.
