Headline

GPs hit with breach of contract notices after NHS England checks up on practices closing early over Christmas

Comment

What hypocrisy! Before criticising practices for alleged minor infringements of their contracts, NHS England might like to reflect on the fact that it doesn't seem to be able to arrange for practices to be paid on time (in defiance of the government's promise to pay small businesses within 28 days). Some of this money is, I understand, 6 months overdue and practices have been threatened with bailiffs as a result of the cashflow problems this has created. My suggestion to NHS England is simple - put your own house in order before you dare to criticise anyone else.
