General Practice is in trouble and needs your help....
Despite carrying out 90% of all NHS contracts, general practice only receives 8.39% of the NHS budget in the UK.By 2017, with the proposed cuts to our existing budgets this is projected to plunge to just 7.29%.
As a result, all general practice is facing a growing crisis. Unfortunately this will impact our services.

From 2 March 2015 there will be a new drug driving law in England and Wales.
If you are taking your medicine as directed and your driving is not impaired, then you are not breaking the law.
It will remain an offence to drive while your ability is impaired by drugs and, if in doubt, you should not drive.
