Superpractice to have 380,000 patients following eight-practice takeover


General practice has been surviving because of the personal touch with 'Own GP', with large conglomerate, health care provision would become an impersonal commodity. Change is good, but Change for the sake of change not good. Patients become numbers rather than Mr X/Y and doctors become computer algorithms. UK GP practise has sustained for so long only because of the personal human touch unaffected by isolated Financial considerations when dealing with patients. But working in big companies is good for GP work life balance. I certainly did not become a doctor to just work with indifference a 9-5 job.
