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


In the UK the NHS has attained godlike status, there is an almost religious belief in it being the only model of healthcare that is even conceivable, whilst it has massive benefits we should not forget it's weaknesses because of blind faith in it! GP does not work! It is underfunded, overused and collapsing nationwide, can our work be done in a different fashion? Perhaps, we need to collectively re-examine how we provide primary care services with the budget and resources allocated to us and then decide as a profession if we can consider alternative models of care, private GP? Perhaps! The way things are going in my patch presently means that there won't be any gps left anyway in a few years!
