Allocations disquiet

The GPC is to renegotiate with the Government over patient allocations after admitting it had never been satisfied with way the problem was dealt with in the contract.

The issue was the only one of five relating to the contract LMCs agreed had failed to meet their aspirations.

A motion was then passed demanding that allocations should be renegotiated to fulfil the aims of the contract.

He added that negotiating priorities would now be funding for primary care from 2006, reviewing the allocation formula and the quality and outcomes framework.
