GP practices forced to tell NHS England if they pay over 'maximum rate' for locums


So if GPC haven't agreed to this, doesn't this constitute imposition just as much as the threatened imposition of the Junior Doctors contract? This sets a very dangerous precedent, as it gives NHSE a window to interfere in how a practice delivers the contract, what staff it employs and how much it pays them, i.e. the crack in the independent contractor status which may be subsequently wedged further and further open until all practices are merely delivery agencies of the DH.
