How the 5,000 GPs target has been watered down


The most depressing aspect is just how utterly predictable this was. Having your bitter cynicism proved correct is cold comfort. The 5000 figure was plucked from thin air as a fillip for Tory morale and a sop for moaning GPs. It will take brutal headlines about mass practice closures in The Sun/Mirror et al before anything of substance happens, but sadly this will be too late for most GPs.
