Dr Glen Sykes: ‘GP morale has never been so low’



There’s no doubt our current Government has improved certain aspects of primary care and many of us feel we have actually done pretty well – and yet I’ve never known morale to be so low.

Labour is unlikely to change its policies on primary care and has shown an arrogant disregard for the views of frontline GPs.

The Tories seem to have promised to bring GPs back to the forefront of the NHS and I also believe they’re talking about renegotiating the return of out-of-hours to family doctors – which, if properly funded, would be a very good thing.

I’m afraid I don’t know much about LibDem health policy.
