Extra 'named GP' funding in doubt as CCGs struggle to stump up cash

Comment

Don't bite the bait, 11:11am isn't a consultant. On the issue of work - I think this is going to be in our GMS contract i.e. no choice but to do the work or risk bleaching the T&C of the contract. What I'm not sure is how the responsibility can be built into GMS contract but the payment seems to be optional (i.e. not embedded into global sum). This ineffect allows government (or it's delgate such as CCG) to withdraw the funding without the need to withdraw the responsibility. Another weak "negotiation" by the GPC I recon. I'm afraid they are so badly out maneuvered we might as well send in my gran to do the negotiation.
