GPC battles over release of quality data

The Scottish Executive's failure to issue guidance on sup-erannuation means GPs north of the border are losing out compared to their colleauges in the rest of the UK.

LMC representatives castigated the executive for 'its complete lack of action'.

The absence of guidance means GPs still do not know what work is superannuable.

Dr Dean Marshall, secretary of Lothian LMC, said: 'We're still in the dark and there seems to be a distinct lack of action.

'They have done it in England so there's no reason for the delay. It just needs to be tartanised.'

Dr David Love, joint chair of Scottish GPC, said negotiators were 'equally unhappy' at the lack of progress.
