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


GPFV was inadequate if fully delivered. I never thought it was deliverable. All it has achieved is giving the breathing space from having to have any meaningful engagement in making general practice sustainable and in making the RCGP feel important in engaging with the government. GPs are as expected voting with their feet. Would the last GP please turn off the lights... and pay all the bills, sort out the redundancy payments, and talk up how wonderful GP is.
