The end of the NHS in a decade?

9th April 2008

A survey by GP magazine Pulse has shown that family doctors are resigned to the end of the NHS within a decade.

The findings, from the poll of more than 500 GPs, show that many were prepared to work directly for the private sector, albeit reluctantly. Around 25% of GPs said they had already been approached by private firms with offers to team up on the provision of primary care with almost 40% prepared to practise in a surgery owned by a private company. However, only 20% supported greater involvement of the private sector.
