LMCs Conference is a chance for us to try and save general practice


quick exit split service - 1. smaller state health service managed by those who want to work with the state - likely to be means tested, non-comprehensive, free at point of use service. will have a role in training juniors. 2. small independent private practices run and staffed by primary care teams independent of state. income from direct payments, insurance, employers. comprehensive service. No QOF, disengagement from CQC and re-validation. Greater say in GMC and RCGP. Operate in networks to provide OOH cover (properly funded) and able to refer to state secondary care and private hospitals. payment by activity. 3. mixed provision - provide some state services and top up with private care. such a model will ensure state healthcare exists and ensure survival of a properly funded general practice. affordability not an issue as there will still be state provision. obvious profession split so why try and unite? let each go their own way a win-win?
