Contract comes under fire

GPs will deliver an attack on almost every aspect of the new contract at this month's annual LMCs conference.

Debate is dominated by motions criticising lack of enhanced services funding, global sum allocations, premises cash and seniority.

The first motion, from Redbridge and Waltham Forest LMC, argued the contract had not met 'aspirations and promises' and would fail in five key areas.

It said the deal would fail to cut workload, empower GPs to control workload, allow GPs to determine what services to provide, resolve patient allocations or improve quality of care.

Other motions deplored the end to the ban on sale of goodwill and called on the GPC to secure more enhanced services funding.
