Cover your ears. The GP indemnity timebomb is about to blow

Comment

1- indemnity will rise exponentially 2- HMG will refuse to reimburse partnerships 3- HMG will reimburse salaried GPs 4- et voila, partnerships swept away as we all race to salaried contracts 5- those partnerships without salaried option collapse into chaos and individual bankruptcy 6- HMG achieves goal of squeezing out partnerships even faster than they hoped without the public realising. 7- All GPs now salaried, (thus controllable, malleable, sackable) with Primary Care run mainly by protocol obedient nurses 8- Public wonders what happened to "their" GP as demand soars, referrals to Secondary Care rocket, and satisfaction plummets. 9- HMG realises to their horror that Primary Care costs a fortune compared to the good old partnership days. 10- In 20 years time GPs encouraged to participate in exciting new concept of forming partnerships with an open ended GMS contract.
