Letters: Gordon Brown has not really got the message

I really do not think, that Mr Brown has any understanding of GPs' concern (GP, 31 October). He just reiterated the same old garbage, using the same old phraseology. He really must think he is doing the right thing.

This government is clearly completely disconnected from the ordinary folk on the ground, in this case grassroots GPs. The only 'clinician' with any input seems to be Lord Darzi, whose only experience of general practice appears to be his two-week attachment as medical student.

The prime minister claims he is listening. I'm not sure what he is listening to - clearly not the profession.

There is clearly neither 'clinical' nor any 'local' involvement.

When are we to introduce a system of a board of healthcare professionals running the NHS, rather than having to put up with this Stalinistic approach?

Dr Nick Markert, Reading, Berkshire.
