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

Comment

This is heresy. everyone knows that the NHS model is sacrosanct and we must never ever consider any other models. If we ever do then the universe will collapse in on it's self and we will cease to exist. no we must soldier on and find a way to deliver care within this system for as cheaply as we can but must not scrimp on staffing or quality if care. as pointed out the public (well most) pay taxes. Even if they paid 1p / year for GP care that's no excuse. We must be innovative and use new technology (which gets paid for by pixie dust), and have enough staff (who will obviously work for free) and provide every service that the public wants - even expensive cancer drugs, top of the range scanners etc etc. All of these items can be paid for by magic beans and pixie dust. the bottom line is - we are out of cash and our collective leaders have no solution. what the LMC have cheekily suggested is that all options are considered to see what possible solutions there are. look even if all GPs in the UK worked for Free we still won't have enough money to pay for care i.e. the other staff, equipment, drugs etc. you can hate GPs as much as you like but no money is no money.
