Mr Hunt, please recognise GPs as specialists


Personally I have no interest in being called a specialist. As I've said before on these pages: If all the specialists resigned en masse, it would be inconvenient, but the NHS would still provide health care. If all the generalists resigned, there would be no functioning NHS. Specialists are optional. Generalists are essential.
