The race is on, Lord Warner

From Dr Guy Clayton

Beverley, East Yorks

If I was an outside organisation bidding to cover my current GP services, I would ensure I omitted the time-intensive parts of the role from the contract – with apologies of course to the terminally ill, very young, elderly, housebound, disabled, depressed and those needing reassurance on a regular basis. Which would leave just the fit, healthy voters. Coincidence?

Lord Warner (News, July 6), with respect, I think you will find the black humour used by GPs at the recent LMCs conference reflects the opinion of even those of us who have been lifelong Labour supporters. The race to see which of us leaves public service first will be close. GPs do have other options.
