Revealed: NHS England stops issuing lifelong GP contracts


All according to the plan - old Contracts wear out with GPs giving up while lucrative APMS Contract prop up cronies and keep the system afloat till more than half the GMS is gone. Then go in for privatization in the agony phase and nobody will be there to protest. Its called yankeeing the NHS and finally Cameron and Hunt will be CEOs of a global corporation. I've always had the feeling - this overhaul will leave more people dead than any other disaster. People are already suffering. Yesterday I sent a patient to the rejuvenated Medway Hospital with a letter and agreement from the Registrar for admission to AMU. Patient was literally dumped in A&E and after 6 hours the Hospital paid a taxi to send him home as there is no one to see you. The ambulance was sent by the Hospital this morning to pick him up and collect him again from home. Just 75 plus with a diagnosis of TENS. Where's the CQC that has declared this institution is out of the red? NHSE doesn't care, they are now trying to squeeze out GPs from their existing GMS Contract by reducing their weighted lists each year resulting in some Practices being pain for only 45 percent of the increased list sizes. Great feeling that we are part of the twentieth century world class NHS which was proudly displayed in the London Olympics.
