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


Yet another open goal that our "Leaders" should be hammering home. What is depressing is that we on the front line are feeling so helpless in the face of this abuse ( add GMC, CQC, NICE and that's just for starters) Joe Public has no idea what is going on with this agenda and where it inevitably will lead and whilst some may say they will get what they deserve, the matter needs to be brought out into the public domain. If any up and coming journalist working for Panorama was wanting to make a name for him/herself "The Wilful Destruction of the Main Pillar of the NHS" would be an eyeopener! Get all these punters who preach Cherry picking Apps, casting aside hardworking popular small GP units, the use of every man and his dog apart from the one person that patients want to see etc. Subject them and the consequencies of their proposals to proper scrutiny and at least get a debate on the subject. This unhealthy abuse really has to be addressed. Can you imagine the Firefighters Union putting up with this! If the whole shooting match goes to pot at least hold the feet of the guilty parties to the fire!
