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


I am sorry but I already pay for the NHS in my taxes. If I am to be charged for seeing my GP, I shall be forced to go to A&E causing complaints there. I had to transfer to a large group practice after the CCG closed down my two-doctor practice in July and I have not yet had occasion to ask for an appointment so I am not a excessive service user. The large group practice offered electronic prescribing but failed to institute it after I had signed my consent. What is going on please? Her Majesty may complain that there is no longer good order in Her Kingdom, what with the chaos in commissioning, bidding and failed contracts which are an increasing feature of this NHS which we taxpayers pay for. That Taxpayers' Alliance may tell us to stop paying.
