​Council's drastic public health cuts will leave GPs 'unable to cope'


We are barely able to cope as it is with the conclusion that whatever the problem is then it’s the GPs responsibility regardless of whether it’s funded or not. Of course a reduction in contraceptive service = rise in population with fewer GPs to provide a service. Then a rise in STDs = potential increased sub fertility so less population! Except that those affected would be expected to be referred to Secondary Care for IVF or whatever other interventions are available! Oh dear! Is my cynicism showing! Oops!
