Light in the LMC conference tunnel


I do not think it is fair to say BMA/GPC had done absolutely nothing to ‘help’ . In effect , any changes brought forward at this dire stage of general practice , can be criticised as useless . I understand that some might even fancy some kind of ‘scorched earth’ politics to wipe out and withdraw from this current model of NHS general practice. Reality is somewhere in the middle between the two extremes. One thing for sure to me is , this 5 year ‘deal’ should be judged subjectively and objectively( hence , evidently) on survival , not ‘glory’ , of general practice. We need people to stay as well as to come in this career . If survival is victory, this is how we judge its success . If British politics is at its all time low (because of you know what ), so is our profession. Perhaps , live or let die , BMA/GPC knows very well , deep down , that this is the ‘last chance’.......
