Gerada to 'start dialogue' on GPs' independent contractor status in new NHS England role

Comment

thanks Anonymous 11.56pm I wondered how long it would be before someone claimed I had a conflict of interest - and that this was determining my thinking and views! How would i be better off if we didn't have partnerships? I don't know - what I know is that I am committed to general practice - I love the profession and believe it too be the back bone of any health service. I want to improve and protect my profession so that we can improve the care we provide to patients - and I believe the ICS has done its time. (PS I wrote about this in 2009 way before my own practice had expanded) http://www.rcgp.org.uk/policy/rcgp-policy-areas/~/media/Files/Policy/A-Z-policy/Changing_Partnerships.ashx I use my own practice as a barometer of what is going on - and can categorically say I have never suggested anything, at any time, merely because I would personally gain.
