GP practices to be stress-tested before being allowed onto new contract

Comment

I'm coming to the conclusion the adgenda is actually to get rid of the British form of general practice entirely. The plan is that in 10 years there won't be any GPs. There'll just be hospitals and 'primary care physicians' employed by them. It's curtains for the British model. Expensive that's what it will be. Madness. Some time around the early 1990's people in power fell in love with the idea of 'management consultants'. 'Smart' people educated at 'top' universities brought in to redesign the running of anything and everything. Having any kind of experience of the business involved was seen almost as an irrelevance ..being 'smart' was all that's needed. Firms like the now extinct Anderson consulting recruited ignorant young clever folk to remake everything. That's why so many of our countries utilities, infrastructure and public services are in such an appalling mess ..they've all been given the 'management consultant' make over by smart folk completely ignorant of the thing they're redesigning. These same arse wipes are in politics and running the health service ...we live in an age of management consulting mindlessness. Ignorance is as an asset. We can all be assured everything will continue to get worse. 'Smart' 'highly educated ' idiots are in charge.
