Over 750 practices across UK could close as GPs leave profession, warns RCGP


"The BMA said earlier this year that general practice was in 'critical condition' and that without an increase in Government funding, more than 600 GP practices will close in England." No! Really? We didn't know that, thanks for telling us. Now, dearies, BMA GPC and RCGP tell us what you are going to do about it, other than sitting on your hands. Is it not time we emulate our nurses? They started a petition against the Royal College of Nurses for the dismal way it handled their pay negotiations and in the last 24 hours they took a hit at the RCN Council with a historic No Confidence vote. But then, nurses have something GPs haven't got (my legal adviser stopped me from spelling it out).
