GPs fear Northern Ireland budget imposition


So, there's been no 'government executive' in NI for nearly a year. You are now the 'practical executive'for the services you are socially and politically responsible for delivering. So 'Carpe Diem'and make your own 'executive' decision. If it's any help: 1. a few miles from you, across the border, pt's only see their GP abut twice a year and have the same QALYs/life prognosis. 2. Pt's pay about £400 pa for the pet insurance. 3. Lots more of common sense even if not supported with USA style 'evidence based medicine' (EBM). from USA medical insurance companies. Were all watching you with anticipation but trepidation. It's fallen to you guys to resolve the likely collapse of quality primary care.
