The electoral process for GPC negotiators is to be overhauled.

Under plans drawn up by a GPC task group, the GPC chair would stand for election for a maximum of two three-year terms.

Other negotiators would also serve three-year terms before being subject to re-election, but would have no restriction on the number of terms they could serve.

Current chair Dr Hamish Meldrum would be allowed to serve seven years under the new arrangements, including his current year of tenure.

But Dr Meldrum virtually ruled out such a move, joking that he would be 'a sad individual' if he were in post in seven years' time.
