GPC pledges to give NHS England a nasty paper cut



The GPC has announced that it will attempt to give NHS England a nasty paper cut when it hands over its survey in September.

’At this stage it’s important to send out a clear and bold message’ says GPC chair ’and giving NHS England a paper cut through the misappropriate use of stationery is exactly the right sort of message’.

The GPC debated whether it should hand over its survey with a threatening staple sticking out the side or use treasury tags rather than properly securing it in a ring binder.

But these measures were considered too extreme.

’They won’t know what’s hit them’ says GPC chair. 

Despite the paper-cut threat, NHS England wants to reassure grassroots GPs that it will put the survey straight in the bin.
