    I’m sure clinicians are doing a superb job in the combating the huge difficulties presented by government cuts to all the relevant bodies responsible for primary care. But sadly as in other sectors including education, the extra mile practitioners go to ensure standards are maintained sadly often result in politicians seeing an opportunity to make even further cuts. And what then? What happens when cuts are so deep staff can no longer fix the cracks anymore? It is the politicians and government that needs to change and not the professionals who have to cope with political short-sightedness and vested interest.
