Headline

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

Comment

It's nice of Prof Gerada to come here and comment. I'm afraid I don't buy it though - you may argue till the cows some home but there is a clear conflict of interest there. How can a co-director of 13 practices run by 200 salaried doctors have absolutely no conflict when remodelling the service in which she has her business. Even if there is no financial gain, there will be a political gain, or at least you will be pushing her views above the others as the last article about single handed GPs clearly show. I don't practice in London (thank god!) but London LMC should really object to this biased appointment. I feel RCGP is harvesting a toxic culture within it now where it's senior most members are using it as a political springboard, as seen here and by Prof Field. I probably will resign my membership next year.
