Over two-thirds of GPs plan to leave or reduce hours, finds DH-backed study


No grass root GPs like the present position as a GP, nor the five year future model of general practice slavery. That is reflected in the survey. The only reason that some LMC reps, GPs sitting on CCG boards, GPs leading federations and the hierarchy at RCGP like the future model is because they think that they will be able to cream off some of the new dosh before it reaches the grass roots. And sadly they are probably right. Money sticks to those closest to it. Just look at the financial sector for proof.
