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


Honestly don't think patients will mind that much if we start slowly introducing the notion our service is not free. Remove the restriction on charging your own patients for additional services - such as weekend or late night appointments. Many of us would happily see our own punters for, let's say £25 per 10 min appointment paid on booking. Some people happy to pay for convenience. That's how it should begin.
