Rally signals start of NHS cuts protest1st March 2010
Two hundred NHS staff met with GP chiefs at a rally at the BMA's head office to protest against polyclinics and cuts to health service funding.
GPC chair Dr Laurence Buckman told the rally that NHS bosses had an "obsession" with polyclinics and explained: "Primary care cannot do what hospitals do. The workforce isn’t there. The doctors and nurses don’t exist." He said patient care would suffer if polyclinics took over care and added: "These cuts will turn a crisis in healthcare into a disaster for some."
