GPC checks with Bogle before release of Plan B

GP negotiators are consulting with BMA chair Dr Ian Bogle before releasing the so-called Plan B alternatives to the proposed GMS contract.

Dr John Chisholm, GPC chair, said the battle plans if GPs reject the contract had implications for consultants and other BMA crafts and required Dr Bogle's input.

LMCs voted to force the negotiators to reveal the non-NHS alternatives before a ballot at their special conference earlier this month.

Dr Chisholm said the plans would still be released if the GPC votes not to hold a ballot at its crucial meeting this week. 'Publication is unaffected by the decision the GPC takes on whether or not to ballot,' he said.

'Clearly there are issues that are relevant to other crafts and so we are discussing arrangements with Dr Bogle.'
