Doc Martin could soon be a thing of the past


A few years ago I left my single handed isolated rural practice. I knew the patients, they knew me. The medicine was good, the patients were great. We had extremely low acute admission rates and excellent QOF scores. In the end I couldn't defeat the NHS who didn't want my kind of practice to exist. Now it is branch of a Practice in a nearby town. The patients are less happy and I cannot comment on the medicine. "Supermarket General Practice" can never provide the tailored care that we delivered. Certainly the end of an era.
