Long-term NHS plan must include funds for GP expansion, says health secretary


He wants to ensure some of the money is available to continue to ‘transform’ general practice...into what exactly? A phone app? A hospital trust lead mega practice open 24/7 with no continuity, run by centralised protocol, staffed by nurses and physicians assistants? Super. This mans ideas are toxic. His vision for the further is flawed. He has the worst tack record and longest tenure of any health secretary. The only useful thing he could add to any discussion on the health service would be the words ‘I’m leaving’ .
