GPs 'can't abandon their contracts with the NHS', says Hunt

Comment

GP’s only have an obligation to look after the NHS patients in an area only while they have a contract with the NHS! Mr Hunt a) knows that most GP’s cannot afford to go private because most patients would not be willing or able to pay privately and certainly not for the range of services that NHS general practice provides and b) most GP’s do feel obligated to their patient population and will hang on to the bitter end. Hence his smug smile. He is stretching goodwill to the limit!
