Abuse of negotiators condemned
LMCs unanimously condemned GPs who have directed vitriolic abuse at GP negotiators since the contract was published.
Dr Richard Vautrey, secretary of Leeds LMC, said those GPs responsible for the insults on online chat forums should 'question their own professionalism'.
He added: '[The negotiators] may not have secured everything and they are the first to say they have not got everything, but they have been subjected to the vilest abuse.
'Family doctors who are supposed to care for their
patients abuse their own negotiators.
'Those who have behaved in this way should be ashamed of themselves.'
