Headline

The real conspiracy of NHS England

Comment

I have a friend who has worked several levels higher than yourself in NHSE for many years, they categorically define that there has been a conspiracy by the treasury to defund and impoverish general practice since 2005, this is completely intentional with no thought to the consequences for the NHS, despite warnings from NHSE - and not something that NHSE has been able to alter, the same individual states categorically "We know general practice and the partnership model is dying, its not that we are letting it happen, we're just not saving it". I trust this individual to be honest with me as I've known them for years and they have nothing to gain from this disclosure. So if NHSE are standing by and watching general practice die, they are guilty of neglect, and if they publicly have accepted the treasury stance on gp income and resource, they are guilty of colluding in the demise of a profession, and possibly ultimately the NHS.
