  • Fairly certain that MPIG was negotiated by the BMA to ensure that no practice was worse off from the new contract which isn't exactly a "fudge". The new contract which was hugely beneficial to the vast majority of general practice simply couldn't have delivered without MPIG. The failure was the exclusion of a realistic strategy to eliminate the MPG over time and that's where the "fudge" arose.
