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


I can see where the arguments arise in this dilemma. In my opinion , the power of the anti-spinning strategy (as I always advocate in this war) lies on the words 'Plan B' not Plan A. And the right message needs to get out there to let people know how dystopic the government had made general practice and hence NHS , become. Even the loyal Toy Soldiers had to rebel.Yes , the other argument is this would be walking into a trap but politics is always about saying/doing the right thing at the right time at the right place in history , the 'supreme moment ', kairos. I would not even think one could push this Plan B 18 months ago but one day of politics is too long . The gravity of politics somehow reminds me Einstein's general relativity, the more intense the gravity ; the more extreme time-space is curved(warping). That was then, this is now. And I agree that this plan B needs a lot of background research to provide substances for colleagues to support and compare . Every region of the country will be different. But the most embarrassing thing to a government is a verdict of a complete failure to deliver health services ,for instance, in the capital and big cities . This battle goes on..... Good luck, comrades
