Only 100 extra GPs added to workforce in six months


It isn't possible to increase the number of FTE GP's by 5000 in the next 4 years. Everyone knows this. All that will happen in the next 4 years is that the government will move the goalposts, find innovative ways of counting people, reclassify allied professionals as pseudo-GP's etc, etc... If all else fails then blame GP's for retiring early, and point out that they msut be overpaid if they can afford to retire early (so let's reduce their remuneration and pension packages so they can't afford to retire).
