Racism problem should be on national agenda

Rubric Legal are giving GPs no guarantee that they will be successful in appealing against GPFC redemption penalties (News, April 30). I asked Rubric solicitor Satish Jakhu what he felt the percentage chances of success were ­ I have had no response. I also said I would be happy to pay a larger fee on a no-win no-fee basis ­ again I got no answer.

I believe it is very difficult for GPs to come to a decision to lay out £5,000 to £10,000 with no evidence of likelihood of success. If Rubric Legal is unwilling to take on a no-win no-fee case I suspect the likelihood of success is risky.

For more GPs to commit to the class action some indication like this is necessary. Do GPs want to end up even more in debt than they are with the GPFC already? I have a £400,000 loan with £110,000 early repayment charge.
