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


anon2016 suggests that not much will happen: and I agree with him -- it won't happen actively. But without a doubt it will happen (passively), because there will come a point in every professional's life when he/she simply won't be able to cope any more and will then resign.... leaving his/her patients in the abyss. I have said for decades that we won't save the NHS if we refuse to go on strike. No-one will listen until it's too late and by then General Practice will have collapsed permanently. What we always needed to do was to stand up to the the NHS political bullies and give them a very firm ultimatum... and then walk away from the NHS if nothing happens. Sadly, it's almost certainly too late now.
