LMCs draw up explosive 'plan B' to take GP practices outside the NHS


can we scotch this myth about baby boomers stealing this generations future? We worked 100 hour weeks with overtime paid at 30% (NOT 130%),did compulsory 24-hour GP cover, waited 2 yrs even to be granted a mortgage, interest rates reached 15%, inflation reached 27%+, tax rate were higher we couldn't afford a washing machine or go abroad on holiday until we'd been together 3 yrs. We didn't have designer clothes, mobile phones; a night out was a couple of drinks at the local not megabucks. And yes we were evicted from our hole in the road. We have paid our dues, and any generation not wishing to support previous ones should think it through.
