The NHS ‘Brexit dividend’ lie is insulting our intelligence


A couple of points. First, Pulse is a primary care publication whose top priority is meant to be general practice. So far, Pulse has been doing a great job with news and education. Sadly, Brexit is altering its ethos. There is not a single line in this article referring to the GPs’ rightful share of the 20.5 bn, most of which will no doubt be channeled to the hospitals to pay their debts, following the fate of the STP's billions. Second, I gave up reading the Guardian some time ago, only to see a medical periodical taking up the Remainers' discredited Project Fear. It is not Brexit that dissuades German or Dutch or French or Polish doctors from working in the UK, but the total demolition of the NHS in general and general practice in particular, by the majority of remainers who run the government. It would be wise for Pulse to keep away from politics that split the country right in the middle and adhere strictly to matters medical.
