We cannot survive without the MPIG

We cannot survive without the MPIG

It would shut its doors and cease to provide NHS medical services.

That is long and short of it. We simply cannot survive without the MPIG - scrapping it would bomb our standard of living back to the stone age.

So, there you have it - the end of general practice.

Rest in peace.

Dr N A C Down, Oxshott, Surrey

I am a single-handed GP. My correction factor is about £68,000.

If the MPIG goes, I go as well. My staff costs are high and getting higher. The Government has washed its hands of the situation by passing the cost of staff to GPs. If there were no MPIG, we would not have voted for the new contract, as I could not have survived. We are a small business, not a charity, and need to make a decent living.

Dr Subhash Chandra Bhatt, Glossop, Derbyshire
