No deal for GPs



‘I don’t know about you, but I’m buying sand bags and a tin hat,’ says Professor Candid.

In case of a no-deal Brexit, GPs have been asked to draw up their own contingency plans.

‘A no-deal Brexit means mobs of angry patients stirred up by the Daily Mail’, warns Prof Candid. ’So I’m not taking any risks. My plan involves sandbagging the front desk and getting the practice staff to build a siege tower. We’ll also dig a bunker and fill it with amoxicillin.’

’It’s going to be every man for himself after Brexit’, continues the Prof. ’And although contingency planning is difficult, the thought of being able to repel patients trying to steal our amoxicillin is enough to keep us motivated.’
