Re: Rammya Mathew: GPs are doing too much

One point at a time, if I may.

Dr Willis mentions the “c**p” forced upon GPs.
Her Majesty could not have done it if the GPs on the negotiating bodies had said NO.

They agreed. You, the GPs, are paying the price and therefore we, the patients, are paying the price.
Will any GPs care to disagree?
If not, will they ask their representatives and the BMA to seek a return to the more sensible days?
