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


this as said above is an incredible national disgrace..the mismanagement of the nhs especially in England over the past 6 years has led to this has been causing and will cause enormous patient suffering and it is absolutely unnecessary...whilst untold billions have and are being wasted on 2012 aqp endless failed privatisations and outsourcings pfi and the internal market---all of which unacceptable bigoted delusional non evidence based political claptrap..our elderly languish and die from hospital acquired illness whilst waiting weeks for massively cut community social care to find placements..our sick wait far too long for hospital appointments and at aed and at overstretched general practice..there are unnecessary deaths due to underdoctoring and undernursing in hospital. disaster it is..all that huge experience and hard won patient/gp understanding over the years lost massive brain drain to civilised countries to escape the lunatic wrecking bullying autocratic regime in this country which acts against all evidence and against all professional advice and worse totally disregards the opinions of patients and the electorate. patients do NOT want to be served by noctors or temporary drs in large hubs who do not know then from adam..this is a very poor service and the lack of therapeutic kmowledge of a patient by not knowing them leads to a far poorer less efficient form of practice. if this is happening in leafy oxford suburbs this is truly terminal. worse than that the nhs was redisorganised in 2012 diametrically opposite to the mandate given... this is followed now by the STP managementbabble for cuts that had actually been discussed in 2013 but not put in the manifesto as it would have lost the explaining why these stealthy plans have been in secret and will be announced as a fait accomplis with the usual faux pretence at 'engagement' with the public with a 2 second response time..after which they will proceed with their mad schemes anyway. I feel NHSE and DOH are completely out of control not accountable to anyone except their private health links. I would think that the slow motion collapse of the whole English nhs should demand mass resignations at nhse and replacement by competent leadership and obviously the resignation of the absolute national disgrace of mr runt. this whole government should in fact go down and I feel there should be a national enquiry into health policy in the last 6 years and on what evidence base and democratic base it has been persued..obviously a lot on the base of the most imbecilic ideologically blinded delusional extreme right wing bigotry but also there is an overwhelming stench of alleged corruption in parliament..individuals responsible for this national scandal must be held accountable. words fail me..never did I expect to see after 30 years as a doctor such evil psychopathic filth in charge of the can they even THINK of front line cuts when they are wasting multibillions as above??? the current mismanagement of the nhs makes me vomit with fury..i hope the inevitable tidal wave of anger when the electorate wakes up to how they have been lied to will drown the conservative party for ever.
