I can’t be the fall guy any more


Phil thanks a lot for all your wise and amusing words over the years. Please take it easy there is very much more to life than general practice. Too many of us soldier on becoming martyrs. Phil is not alone. Many GPs are in very similar situations. Why aren't the GPC and RCGP taking action on our behalf? They have a duty to all GPs to support us. They are Doctors and because of this have a Professional duty of care for us. This is above regulation and contract negotiation. Why are they not conducting their own research into how many GPs are facing similar positions? If we ignored our patients in the same way they ignore us we would be reported to the GMC.
