BMA writes to warn patients GPs may have to turn them away over winter


Welcome back to the days before the NHS existed. If the allowed budget for the NHS isn't enough and the workforce isn't big enough to provide the expected care then the lifespan of the population could be comprised. If the population doesn't live so long then pensions will be paid for a shorter time and there will be fewer people needing medical care. Sounds like the ultimate in cost efficiency savings to me or am I just getting even more cynical with age?!
