Welcome to the great 'new deal' show! Yes, that is Jezza in a clown car


Where do GPs 'clock off' at 7pm ? Sounds cushy - I'd go and work there! But GPs are not supposed to have a life outside the surgery, are they? Agree with your suggestions to revive GP morale. Our pal Jezza would do well to look back to pre-Griffiths and internal 'market' days to learn what used to make the NHS, especially general practice, the envy of the world. Now, after his new deal arithmetic is done, what share of total NHS funding now goes to general practice? Also agree with your earlier Surgery A vs B analysis. Scope for using professional judgement, common sense, problem-solving skills and discretion has been decimated. It's depressing - keep going, please. Your blogs are a real morale booster.
