New practice website

Apologies for the lack of posts.

I've been rather busy trying to make some headway against the destruction of General Practice.

Sadly I think that we (the public) will lose our Primary Care service. Even more sadly, many people won't realise that the replacement is less good than the current system until it is too late to go back.

I suspect that within 5 years the current model of partnerships providing continuity of care for patients will be largely defunct, replaced most likely by Polyclinics with some shift-working salaried doctors but mostly with non-medically trained staff such as nurse practitioners and nurses.

On the up-side, we have spangly new practice website at www.manorparksurgery.com

Have a look if you like.

And to the 50-60 or so people (according to site monitor) who view this website a week despite the lack of posts, thanks for keeping an eye out for so long.
