Revealed: NHS England stops issuing lifelong GP contracts


technically - is this not the end of general practice as we know it? the expectation of being a GP is at some point one could go into a partnership with a life-long contract. This was the reason given as to why we had to put up with a one sided contract as we had job security. With this 'sacred' principle being broken (under the GPC's watch) why should we give any loyalty? if the GPC has any credibility left they should now be seeking our interests as the NHS has abandoned us.
