Just extra indemnity cover for this alone is going to drive GPs away. Already cover is becoming so expensive for everyday work that the GP game is not worth the candle. So so sad to hear about people like Peverley and Moulson - just the tip of the iceberg. I fear that Mr Hunt and his imposed Contracts and snide remarks like A+E know elderly patients better than their own GPs [ when GPs see 90% of face to face consultations], pensions, CQC etc has already put paid to GP land. How can anyone join knowing that whatever is promised today, Mr Hunt can take away tomorrow. We need a new Contract and I mean a Contract, not unilaterally changeable.
