Does the doctors’ vote matter?

Does the doctors’ vote matter?

A report by Celia Hall, Telegraph Medical Editor, says GPs look set to desert Labour at the next general election, according to a poll just published.

When more than 1,000 GPs were asked about their voting intentions, only one in 10 said they intended to vote Labour, compared with nearly a third who voted for the Government in 2001.

These are the figures compared with a similar survey in 2001: LAB 11 (-19): CON 30 (+4): LD 29 (+3): OTH 13

The poll was conducted online by the doctors’ newspaper, Pulse. It is not clear whether a pollster which is a member of the British Polling Council carried out the survey and whether a true comparison with 2001 is valid.

Normally we do not cover non-BPC polls.

UPDATE: We now understand that the poll was carried out by NOP.
