What do GPs owe the NHS?

Comment

1058 This is not a sleep walk. In NI funding to GPs has been cu from 11 to 5.5% in 12 years. It is deliberate policy. From the DOH perspective, if you can pay GPs 6 pounds per consult [ 3 take home ] and you can still get plenty of them, why bother paying more? Talking about pay, dentists and accountants as well know how to charge. My accountant is 200 pound an hour and THE DM is angry that GPs ge 100 pounds per hour on Christmas night. I, for one, believe this nation does not value its doctors at all. Ultimately though a separate spectre of increasing litigation may put paid to even the most altruistic of doctors. For me, it is about time. Let them so with the noctors.
