At the heart of general practice since 1960

Stop whinging about locum pay and quit

I am not surprised Professor Sir Brian Jarman thinks the Government is out to destroy general practice (News, June 28). I am surprised he has only just recognised it as fact.

Ever since the Steel Lady introduced an invoicing system in 1990 till the present time with all the difficulties massaging global sums and MPIGs, the primary objective has been the destruction of the NHS and the introduction of private medicine.

For this reason I believe his solution of preventing re-election is naive and only delays matters slightly. The difficulty for successive governments is not abolishing the NHS but making it look as if it is us – the health professionals – who are the drivers of the abolition.

The tactics used are nasty, scheming and devious, but these are the tactics of politicians.

If we are to resist we must get the public behind us and fight a clean fight. The only way to save the NHS is through massive public outcry.
