Letters, calls and emails: Need, not choice ought to drive health policy

Dear Editor

The government seems intent on extracting 'vengeance' for the humiliations it has suffered over the GMS contract.

However, somewhere in amongst this choice-driven agenda aimed at pleasing patients who 'want', are ill people who 'need'.

Isn't it time we got back to basics and appreciated that simple fact?

I'm fed up with sound bites from insignificant politicians of whatever creed. If they keep this up, they won't have a GP population to smear, because those of us who can retire will do so, and those who are young enough will get up and go. There aren't any jobs for them anyway after the MMC fiasco.
