The real conspiracy of NHS England


The background:- I wonder if you are media and politically savvy, using what you describe to attract our attention in one of the means of communication to Primary Care which in my career experience consistently provides a fuel to negativity. Typically, exploring the background to the headline reveals a different story, just like here. The other comments here also reveal the effect of NHS behaviours on how those at the front line of Primary Care now feel. Surely cause for grave concern? I am passionate about Primary Care and have been through my career (nearly at an end - thank goodness you say!) and have recently found the TED talk "Start with Why" followed by the unabridged audiobook an enormous help with the feelings of negativity which you describe. It may help others. I respect your right to have an opinion, but wonder if you are exploring the realities in Primary Care which are producing the loss of morale, inability to recruit, some of the negative behaviours becoming more prevalent (or exposed by the pressures) - and before those who wish to comment say "we do not have a problem" - look ahead to a possible situation of clinicians not there due to retirement, illness, etc. Happy to explore this further.
