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


Old adage says "keep your mouth shut and let people think you are an idiot rather than opening it and confirming you are an idiot". the ill informed naivety of her comments betrays her complete ignorance. Perhaps ask Jezza how the recruitment of 5000 more GP's is going, perhaps ask GP's how despite advertising for months on end with no applicants for GP jobs, perhaps try asking GP's who have employed other clinicians at their own expense and trained them only to still pick up all of the work they cant do and the bill for them being there, before saying we are not trying hard enough because after another 12 hour day with lunch whilst driving to visits it doesn't go down well. Tory mismanagement of public services through their choice to impose austerity rather than have an honest conversation with the public about what the services they promise will actually cost is a facade to exploit all of us who work in them to protect the wealthiest in society from paying their fair share of the true cost of living in our wonderful civilised country.
