34,000 patients left without a fixed GP as practices 'sucked into black hole'


"But does it have the high paid jobs for the spouse of potential GP? Tax and pension issues mean that gp is more attractive as a second breadwinner part time job nowadays." The point is a proper city, not some 'coastal resort', is about to lose a functioning GP service. It has 'average' levels of employment opportunity and is near the South Hams, Dartmoor and Cornwall so was traditionally a fairly popular place to come work. Like all the experiments of the last few years it seems this will be allowed to continue just to 'see what happens'!
