Comrades, it’s time to play dirty


Unity is overrated. I sincerely hope that the GPs do not follow JDs in a pursuit of public support. Leave politics to plebs, you are professionals, who are supposed to be above it ffs. Follow GMP, raise safety concerns and safeguarding regarding every single bit of work leaking out of the hospital that should not do. Load up the local CCG's duty of care and sue them if they do not demonstrate that they are contributing adequately to your sustainability. Do not sign a single enhanced service/local improvement scheme/public health contract unless you can identify a 30-40% profit margin. Be ruthless in the pursuit of quality and all the nonsense will fall away by itself.
