@ June Greaves | Other healthcare professional 24 Sep 2016 10:22am "Surely, General Practice IS part of the NHS just like Nursing & ALL the healthcare professions." But it isn't. GPs are private, SMEs, which are contractors TO the NHS. What you're claiming is similar to suggesting that Big Pharma is part of our NHS - tho' the reverse may soon be the case. Dentists, high street opticians and pharmacists, almost all of the residential care and nursing home sector, not to mention the agencies making fat surpluses supplying nurses, are part of the profit based sector, not our N H Service.
