May deadline for NHS England to report GP retention plans to MPs


Someone actually needs to speak to GPs directly. I know a string of GPs who have made a decision to retire or a decision to reduce hours considerably as a result of the pension tax rules. Correcting that would be the equivalent of gaining (not losing) 2000 GPs immediately. It might seem a lot of work, but 2000 GPs is worth 2 Billion pounds in training costs.
