Portadown: GPs rally as pressures spread to nearby town


My heart goes out to GPs and patients there. I hope there are lessons learned that save the many other places all over the UK that now teeter close to the brink of collapse. Maybe the administrative and regulatory burden could be reviewed and lightened? Hostile management and Westminster undermining the grass roots do not help. BMA/ RCGP are not as constructively supportive as one could hope. Unfunded work transfer from Hospitals to GPs is another key issue.
