Prime Minister Laughs at Joke Directed at GP Voicing Concerns on NHS Policies

In a recent campaign event in Wiltshire, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was confronted by a general practitioner (GP) who voiced her concerns about the current state of the National Health Service (NHS) and the employment status of GPs under his policies. The GP, who claimed to be one of the 2,500 unemployed due to the government’s policies, challenged the Prime Minister on the future of general practice in the UK.

The GP’s impassioned plea highlighted the “constructive dismissal of general practice” and warned that the Conservative Party risked losing the votes of 37,000 GPs. She argued that the complexity of patient consultations, especially for those over 40 with multiple diseases, cannot be managed by “half-qualified staff.”

The event took a contentious turn when another attendee suggested that GPs spend more time on holiday than at work, eliciting laughter from the Prime Minister and the crowd. In response, Mr. Sunak outlined his support for GPs through investments in “digital telephony” and efforts to make it easier for patients to see other primary care practitioners, such as pharmacists.
