"The Government are a bunch of cunts.
No, that is too restrained. They are a collection of duplicitous cunts; reneging cunts; lying cunts; and utter fucking cunt-slime of the most dishonest kind imaginable.
And they are cunts who hate doctors. At every stage of a doctors career, New Labour has introduced barriers and obstacles to fuck them over.
Fresh A-level students now have to sit a 'clinical aptitude test' which was forcibly implemented to select candidates, despite the fact it never worked.
The syllabus of a medical degree has lost the core subjects of anatomy, physiology and pathology, to be replaced by the touchy-feely bollocks approaches of 'communication', so that doctors can now empathetically tell relatives that their loved-ones have died due to the fact that they fucked up the surgery / internal medicine / disease management........"
Read on for more of this excellent summary at Dr Rant, I can't help agreeing with him but then again I can see through the government's propaganda campaign against GPs, unfortunately not everyone can. I cannot stand the way in which the agents of the state behave, the way that their vindictive cohorts bully and force, rather than listening and negotiating.
I am not pleading for sympathy or tears, I would just like people to realise that this reform is going to wreck a perfectly good primary care system. The more the government tries to control primary care in its totalitarian manner, the worse things will get. The new GP contract has actually worsened the inequality of access to primary care as the stupid target based payment systems GPs working in poorer areas even more than before.
The current reform agenda is resulting in Fisher Price Walk in Centre nurses being let loose to diagnose and treat after dumbed down four week courses. The Darzi review has not yet been completed or consulted, but strangely his ideas are already being ordered upon us at a PCT level; polyclinics will leave more surgery being done without adequate medical backup in place. An enormous amount of money is being spent to produce a cheap Third world style service, and to me this is incredibly sad.
