Theresa May: She gives stupidity a bad name.


Seriously, Theresa May? Your answer to the humanitarian crisis gripping the NHS in England is to accuse GPs across the country of laziness and threaten to take away their funding?

That is the stupidest thing This Writer has heard yet, in a saga of stupidity spanning the whole period since the Conservatives sidled back into office in 2010.

How does Theresa ‘Mindless’ May think GPs will react?

Let’s not speculate. We have Dr Clare Gerada on Twitter to tell us:

Get the message, Theresa May? Because you certainly will in the very near future!

GP surgeries will be forced to give patients appointments when they want or face funding cuts, Theresa May has announced as she attempts to relieve the pressure on crisis-hit Accident & Emergency units.

The Prime Minister will demand that GP surgeries meet the Government’s pledge to open from 8am to 8pm seven days a week unless they can prove that there is not demand in their area.

A major package of Government funding will be “contingent” on GPs being able to “demonstrate” that they are offering appointments “when patients want them”, ministers will say.
