Oh Lord – why Darzi is missing the point


Silver surfer. Do young lawyers ‘not want partnerships’? Is the partnership concept generally ‘dead as a dodo’? Or is there something about the government imposed NHS GP partnership model specifically that completely stinks? There’s more in the world than medicine and there are many ways to organise a partnership. The concept of partnership isn’t dead, it’s just been perverted by the government to such a degree that no one in their right mind would sign up for the type on offer. It needs reform to be what it should be, not replacing with a pale excuse for a career - salaried - that anyone doing for more than a few years will soon tire of. Saddling the next generation with a dead end career model that makes them slaves is a poor legacy to leave and nothing to be proud of.
