Revealed: the effect of the Government's NHS long-term plan on general practice


There is nothing here that would encourage younger doctors to become GPs, nor persuade older GPs to not retire early. More guff about “Primary Care investment” (with not a penny to small partnerships), waffle about “social prescribing” (didn’t that used to be somebody else’s job?), and Futurama style fantasies regarding hi-tech consultations that most GPs and patients over 40 simply don’t want or need. Reads more like the Last Rites than another Forward View.
