Cutting salt has 'wider BP role'

The GPC has warned that practice-based commissioning will not work unless the Government ring-fences funds to pay GPs' management costs.

Dr Chaand Nagpaul, chair of the GPC subcommittee on primary care development, urged GPs to support commissioning but said it would be 'virtually impossible' without guaranteed money.

LMCs passed motions supporting practice-based commissioning and insisting it should be practice led rather than PCT driven.
