I can’t be the fall guy any more


Phil, I have been reading and enjoying your articles and blogs since about the time you started them 20 years ago. Get well soon mate. Then get out. No-one will give you any medals for struggling on, not the NHS, not your patients, nobody. Make sure you live long enough to get your pension back and enjoy it. I manage a practice in a lovely genteel suburb of a lovely town in one of England's prettiest and most popular regions yet we can't get a single application from a GP after many months of advertising. The Titanic has been holed below the waterline and is going down, it is beyond saving, make sure you have swum away before it sucks you down with it. All the best Phil and thank you for the smiles and enjoyment your writing has given me over the last 2 decades.
