GP practices to be stress-tested before being allowed onto new contract


If you are being asked to sign a carte blanche regarding your ability to cope with the downside of the incoming contract, rest assured if there is an opportunity to bury you alive, this will be utilized by NHSE. In my case, even before I took over the Practice in 2010, they halved the MPIG when MPIG cuts were unheard of - the best part was that when I recently questioned the GP who took me on as a partner and was within 3 months of leaving, he was shocked as did not realize this had happened. You want corruption and intrigue, carry on signing what you are getting - or leave these Contracts for the big boys in CCGs and LMCs who most likely have inside information and can manage and handle any 'risk' - of which they certainly are aware at the time of signing while you aren't.
