GPs unite for London rally

BMA chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum (pictured far right) was one of 7,000 campaigners attending the NHS Together rally in London at the weekend.

He is pictured to the immediate right of Dr Janet Massey, a GP from Felixstowe, Suffolk with fellow marchers. The rally was to protest against private provision, job insecurity and low morale. Dr Meldrum told the rally: 'As GPs, we are saying stop blaming us for the NHS's problems. Stop referring to us as overpaid and not working hard enough. It is actually GPs who have the potential to help save the NHS.'
