Rural GPs 'unanimously' oppose new Scottish GP contract


I agree Roderick that this should not be seen as a rural v urban issue the disinvestment in Scottish General Practice has seen cities like Edinburgh , Dundee and Aberdeen at a tipping point that threatens the vey survival of General Practice across the whole country. The £250 million promised by 2021 is 2% of the Scottish NHS spend and exactly mirrors the 9% to 7% disinvestment we have seen in comparison to the rest of the NHS in recent years. Apparently we should be grateful that we are getting our money back in the dim and distant future ,managed not by us but middle mangers in the NHS. I feel sorry for the young enthusiastic GPs I am privileged enough to train.
