GP numbers decrease by more than 1,000 over past year


Much more than pay/LTA/60%tax, are the multitude of pressures: Regulatory overhead, complaints (ombudsman), expectations, lack of support, political expediency, real powerlessness with notional responsibility (CCG/ACO), political hostility, capricious CQC, NHS propco, appraisal, top down reform, unfunded transfer of work; all are signals by actions not words, what DoH/HMG's priorities are. We have all met senior staff of CCG, DoH, Ombudsman and CQC who think GPs are NHS salaried staff... sigh!
