How to render private GP’s ineffective! Make them work in an already dysfunctional system.
In contrast, the Direct Democracy Forum envisions a system which allows patients of public health systems, be they NHI patients or whatever, to be attended by private practitioners and institutions at their normal rooms, clinics or hospitals. That way a lot of pressure will be removed from otherwise overstressed public health institutions and access to medical care will become much easier for public health patients.
That being said, it will also encourage the public health system to improve its service delivery, which it will need to do because it would effectively be competing with private sector health services for patients. This is exactly what the DDF would like to see happen, with only effective institutions surviving. See DDF Health Policies.
The buck stops at the ballot box.
