Number of GPs continues to decline as 200 leave in three months


the DOH will say more money than ever is being spent on the NHS, we have more nurses and doctors than ever and we are aiming to deliver an extra 5000 GPs. GPs are also an important element of the NHS and we (the doh) support the work that they do - so all is well. the RCGP will support them and say the 5YF view is the right way and work at scale etc etc. the BMA will support them and fight for a 2% increase in pay as a victory and tell us off for talking the profession down but seriously Vautrey is there anything that you can say to actually talk up general practice without lying? If things are so rosy then let's hear about it?
