GP shortages down to practices 'not delivering', says new health minister


I had to go to the politico's website to check that journalistic licence had not taken over. "Here in Thurrock we have a shortage of GPs – partly because we aren’t doing enough to attract them, and partly because GP practices aren’t delivering enough to meet local demand." That's it, verbatim, a sort of mental disconnect that suggests all is not right in the thought processes. Part 1 is fine but what the heck has GP's aren't delivering got to do with GPs not wanting to work there? Inverse logic I would have thought? Then it goes on to state that GPs are getting the money to provide the staff and services. Here she is just plain wrong. She'll fit in nicely with IT savvy Jeremy (iMac) Hunt and his DoH stooges.
