Waiting lists set to soar amid six-fold rise in GP vacancies

Post by Thorin on Fri May 12, 2017 7:16 am

Waiting times to see a GP are set to soar amid a six-fold rise in vacancies for family doctors, new figures suggest. The statistics show record shortages of family doctors, which have already fuelled rising waiting lists and surgery closures across the country. The findings from Pulse magazine shows 12.2 per cent of positions are currently vacant - an increase from 2.1 per cent in 2011. And almost one in five of GPs polled said they had given up trying to recruit a doctor in the last year because it had proved impossible. Latest figures show the number of patients waiting at least a week for an appointment has risen from 13.8 per cent to 19.3 per cent in three years.

Remember folks, BUPA dont do general paractice. Nor do they do A&E.
Or social care. Or mental health.
The conservatives want to privatise the NHS. Over half of the cabinet have vested business interests in private health care.
Vote carefully. Dont come crying on here if a relative dies on a trolley waiting 12 hours in A&E for treatment. It will be partly your own fault if you vote for May..

You really think this would be better under Labour?

I dont think so.

So you want a fully privated Trump style health service.  £200 per month per person?

How to lose your MDs :

Make education harder to afford;
Allow the sciences and maths to become unpopular school subjects;
Make health care too expensive for average punters;
Make hospitals too expensive;
Crack down on immigrant doctors and nurses;
Make it harder for doctors to set up in their own practices;
Depress starting salaries for new doctors, nurses, technicians, ambo's and other support staff..

Vote Conservative;  Privatise all public medical services;  Fuck over your national health services  !

Where is the manifesto showing the Tories plan this?

In your make believe world?

Its in the same manifesto as " No plans to increase VAT.
And no plans to increase tax."
Only gullible fools like you fall for their lies.
