The 2014 GP contract deal: what we know so far


Well done and congratulations to Chaand Nagpaul on negotiating such a sensible deal. Considering that we are in times of austerity with a dearth of resources, it would have been tempting for Jeremy Hunt and the treasury to have pressurised for a significant clawback . The GPC team have done well to highlight the folly of pushing GPs beyond breaking point and have negotiated what appears to be a sensible list of changes . Well done on getting rid of ridiculous aspects of the QoF. The changes described are a basic revision that most of us as GPs would have recommended anyway. The DESs should hopefully be the correct vehicle to allow JH to pursue some of the more complicated areas.
