Talks on GP out-of-hours responsibility to begin this year, says NHS England

Comment

It seems so inefficient to make individual practices responsible for OOH when the CCGs already are: how much clout does a single practice have over a contract they have not awarded? Like everyone else, I agree that the agenda is to force the GPs to perform as well as be responsible for OOH cover. btw are the recommendations of the Carson report 2000 (which led to the nGMS contract having a *whole practice* opt out - or not - provision) still apply? http://www.out-of-hours.info/downloads/oohreview.pdf
