GPs should be ‘pleased’ when small practices close, suggests NHS's top GP


The good news is my small practice has capacity, available appointments, personal lists and triage by the Dr himself. Last time I looked less OOH and A/E attendance, and a better than national 2WW conversion rate. Also didn't some clever study recently come up with broadly similar data for small practices. Feel free to visit Grimsby where I work, but guess he has no idea where it is on the map far less the ability to find it! Better be quick though as comments like these do nothing to encourage me to stay 1 minute longer than I have to as I'm such a valued member of the medical profession as a GP in a small practice. As Rowan Atkinson said "I spurn you like I would a rabid dog!"
