The independent contractor model is being left to die


I have been a partner for 11 years and seen partnership earnings dwindle, complaints and indemnity rise, less funding, mores stress whilst salaried dr pay has gone up and up . Unfortunately the system as it is doesn't work. Something has got to give, if the doh won't cough up funding we either have to go private route or basically let the system implode which it is currently doing. At present general practice in the UK is a toxic mess and whatever happens it won't remain as it has been over the last 50 years for sure.
