Third of practices in town could close within 18 months


Governments have been warned about this for the past 15 years or longer. They promised more GPs, they promised more midwives, they promised more CPNs and more district nurses. All these promises over the years and nothing is done. Collapse. Such a shame. In the late 1980's when I entered GP. we had poor remuneration compared to Consultants, be we had great teams, of midwives, D.N.s and CPNs and Psychiatric services. Where are these services now ?
