This afternoon outside Leinster House, Dublin
“Over 350 GPs from across the country gathered outside the DÃil this afternoon to protest over cutbacks. The National Association of General Practitioners claim that their members’ practices is being ignored by Government and that the emigration of young GPs is impacting the service. This is the first time the GPs have gathered in protest: they say that patient safety and well-being is at stake and that specific groups are being ‘ punished ‘ by continuous cuts in GP care.”
