The end game was always to dismantle general practice


It's the profession that is killing GP land. Part-time working, giving up out of hours so we no longer had the monopoly of primary care. Then we gave up being responsible for the computer systems and GPs in Scotland are now giving up being responsible for their premises. Most GPs now seem to prefer a part-time salaried service. GPs are specialising increasing the number of appointments needed, continuity of care is falling. I do not think the Government can go against the tide of what the profession seems to want. there is no plot to break General Practice, if there was the simplest thing is let the profession, now increasingly a trade, get on with its own demise.
