Headline

GPs to move ‘as close to salaried as possible’ under radical plan to reduce workload in Scotland

Comment

I suspect the Scottish GPC see this as an option to protect GP incomes as the last few years have seen expenditure out stripping income.It may also serve to define their role as a GP as a time when we seem to be being delegated more and more responsibility and work. However it will cause fragmentation of the practice team which is a pity. Better to get HMG to fully fund practice staff expenditure , limit and/or reduce contract changes so we can all catch up, and allow us to focus on what we were trained for - medicine . Let the social services look after the social care we are increasingly being asked to undertake.
