GPs overlooked as Government finds hundreds of millions to bail out hospitals


All of this money will go to agencies, management consultants and NHS management. None on frontline staff or retention. And none to us. It’s an absolute disgrace. The BMA need to set a maximum number of consultations and patient contacts per day for GPs so we can start to push back instead of just mopping up extra work for no funding, at risk to us. It’s only until you give clueless politicians and journalists a pointless target to watch, will we start to get extra funding so we can ‘prove’ we’re are struggling and not just ‘moaning’.
