GP numbers have decreased in first year of NHS rescue package

Comment

As clear as mud. But let's accept that there has been a decrease in the number of FTE GPs. Could NHS Digital please help us to track down our missing colleagues, starting with: How many are sitting comfortably at CCG governing body tables? How many "represent" us at LMCs? How many have become medical directors for Health Education England? How many have joined DH & NHSE and their "agencies"? How many choose to give pointless advice to patients (if you eat less) from Public Health England and H&W Boards platforms? For more on "missing GPs' read the Peverley classic: http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk/views/blogs/peverley/mr-hunt-i-know-where-your-5000-extra-gps-are/20033907.blog
