Opposing the GP contract imposition was a gamble. Was it worth it?


Dr Ho - many thanks for your comment. It's certainly a fair point, although the tagline on the cover you mention was actually 'Leader of a defeated profession?' - the question mark was crucial! It is a matter of debate among GPs at the moment I think - but even those who claim the profession does seem defeated would not necessarily blame its leaders. As the next comment says, the Government is a monopoly employer which can effectively do what it wants - and currently seems to be doing so... Steve Nowottny Editor, Pulse
