The buried poll – just 12% of GPs trust the Tories with the NHS

Excellent spot by Tom Pride – only 12% of GPs trust the Tories with the NHS. Another story the national media is ignoring completely..

Pride's Purge

(not satire)

A survey by Pulse magazine– a weekly publication for GPs – shows only 12% of GPs in the UK trust the Conservative Party with management of the NHS.

To give an idea if how newsworthy this is – a similar poll in 2010 found as many as 53% of GPs were planning to vote Conservative at the general election.

Today, Labour is by far the most trusted party by GPs to manage the NHS.

Here’s the article:

GP support for Conservatives plummets as party loses trust over health policies

This information must obviously be extremely damaging for the government because it was entirely ignored by the mainstream media.

And the magazine itself released the survey around midday on May the 1st – much too late for any canvassers to use it on the doorstep in the local elections.

Funny timing that.

  1. But you only need 12% of GPs to run the CCGs. I expect estimates vary but apparently you can comfortably run a totalitarian state as long as 15% of people are on your side.
