Scottish contract on a knife edge as GPs split 50:50 on new direction


There are good things here. MPIG is being incorporated into the global sum so no practices will have to worry about that disappearing. Leasing of premises hase been a big issue for some practices so removing this burden will be good. The £80K is THE MINIMUM a FT partner will earn- it is unconscionable that so many have been below this level till now. Other than that we will still be indeopendent businesses managing our own budgets and taking on staff so not likely that HMRC are going to change views. Doubts? Yes. Its going to take quite a while to grow all the phramacists/paramedics/physios/nurses to help out- if they can be grown at all.
