This article focuses on the manifesto for general practitioners (GP) in Great Britain, developed by the journal "Pulse." The manifesto was developed to stop the core values of general practice being eroded. To ensure GPs are paid properly for the work they do and to safeguard their pension. GPs will keep their choice of computer system. There is more consultation about IT plans. The rise in the retirement age is being reviewed. British Prime Minister Tony Blair has pledged to cut National Health Service targets, meaning all parties are committed to this goal.
