Third of practices in town could close within 18 months


A cut in % GP funding from 11 in 2004 to 5.5 in 2015 as a share of the NHS is clear cut indication from the DOH in NI that they do not care about GPs. A few weeks ago an extra 62 million was released for the NHS in NI. Of that,180000 was for GPs who see 90% of all consults in the NHS. No body cares for GPs or GP land, so let it go and do not bemoan its fate. An Eire system is coming.
