The devil really is in the detail


I absolutely agree. This contract is gives us some short term satisfaction such as getting rid of some QOF nonsense (QP, GPPAQ...) only to inflict long term suffering ( blamed GP, declaration of income, scrapping of seniority). Sounds a bit like what politics is all about and probably the BMA should be more regarded as a political organization than a trade union. It might make life temporarily bearable for anyone able to retire in the next decade at the expense of the ones coming after that. The only advise for young doctors or medical students though can be - Don't go into General Practice unless you're a serious masochist or a completely deluded do-gooder.
