My GP practice in Pendle has three partners. Two of the partners see patients for 2-3 sessions per week. The rest of their time is taken up with chairing steering committees and non-NHS work. Their NHS income accounts for a fraction of the other incomes they are generating. One of these 'partners' c...

Re: The end of the Throw In?

At long last!

Football should be played with feet (predominantly)
I have long held the belief that a throw-in is largely a disadvantage to the team throwing it in. Assuming it is replaced with a kick-in, then this should be much more of a leveller.
