CCGs should be able to take action against underperforming GPs, claims report


The LMCs need to be involved. Are we talking failing practice or poorly performing doctor? In the latter case, the LMCs/PCTs often had good arrangements to deal with this which got rather swept away last April. New models are emerging but not really established yet. Really is an LAT issue - dumping on the CCG as opposed to taking advice from the CCG seems inappropriate. CCGs are not [yet] our contract holders.
