Things can only get better? Dream on...


Everything points to a terminal decline in General Preactice. Proposed solutions just take far too long to bear fruit to avert the collapse of GP (and therefoe the NHS as a whole). IMO the only hope is a very large pay increase along with the necessary pension chnages. This would at least make more people give GP a go, delay retirements and stem emmigration while loger term fixes have time to work. Meantime we need to train a lot more GPs and give Primary Care a fair share of funding (which it's never had). The job is just not doable with the workforce available and the remuneration is now pitiful. DOI I am retired.
