BMA is Not Asking GPs to Leave the NHS
Responding to a news article in Pulse magazine on the BMA's impasse with Government on extended hours, Dr Laurence Buckman, chairman of the BMA's GPs Committee, said:

"The BMA is not encouraging or even asking GPs to leave the NHS. We are fighting to preserve it.

"GPs care passionately about the NHS. They have great fears about the Government's intent to introduce private firms into primary care which risks destroying the traditional model of UK general practice that is so highly valued and trusted by patients and admired across the world."

"We are naturally looking at all the options if faced with an imposition1 by Government, including advising GPs of the consequences of leaving the NHS."
