LMCs exasperated at health board tactics

GPs blocked a motion calling for an independent Welsh BMA and rejected calls for a devolved annual representatives' meeting.

Dr Phil White, chair of North Wales LMC, said that because the BMA in Wales negotiated directly with Government, it should be given more staff and a stronger role.

Dr Andrew Dearden, chair of GPC Wales, agreed that work for the association had 'sky-rocketed' since devolution but argued a separate BMA would cost far more.

GPs voted in favour of more staff, but against a separate representatives meeting. No vote was taken on the issue of a devolved BMA for Wales.
