Don’t write off Generation Y just yet


You probably know where I stand for partnership, continuity and younger generation(s). The real question here is , however , what is the latest definition of a GP partner in this system which has been seriously damaged by our common enemy? What will we do to preserve the telos of general practice we have long served or is it really inevitable that this old purpose had to be scrapped altogether? For those young colleagues who are presented in front of them opportunities to become partners , I suppose you may share the feeling of David Milliband about 'coming out' again,"It's hard to see, but what is the point of saying never?'' ''Arguments about justice and rights are often arguments about the purpose, or telos, of a social institution, which in turn reflect competing notions of the virtues the institution should reward and honour .'' Michael J Sandel
