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


It is the governments obligation to provide health care for its citizens...... it is up to individuals whether or not to work within the health system the government creates. Yes we have to follow any contract with this sleezy government, which can unilaterally change things at the drop of a hat, if we accept their contract, but they can't stop us from emigrating. Mr Hunt is wrong, the state is our source of income.....I agree, but only if we agree to work for it. I don't. My main source of income is the Australian tax payer. There are Canadian tax payers, Kiwis, all sorts who could become our main source of income. The fact they are even talking about mass resignations in UK government is progress, the danger is if GPs don't act quickly to follow through on this they will attempt to legislate to stop GPs from doing just that. We need areas to fail to give this the national publicity it needs.
