GPs getting into the lifeboat

Posted on

I read a great comment from one of the leading GPs in the country at the weekend, reacting angrily to the ConDems claim that 90% of GPs were showing support for commissioning by joining GP Commissioning pilot consortia.

As he put it "Getting in the lifeboat doesn't mean you approve the sinking of the ship."

Neatly put.

And apart from all but a very few diehard market enthusiasts in GP's ranks, whose very enthusiasm proves they do not understand in their naivete the issues they are addressing, he is typical of 89% of the 90% who may now be involved in this process. They're reluctant, but coerced. Don't mistake it for commitment.

Only a fool would.

That fool is Cameron.
