A new contract is born, but is it Scottish GPs' saviour?


Saviour! Not if your a rural GP! The impact report has arrived and surprise surprise they are slashing our Global sum and topping it up with a "payment protection". Anyone got any idea how long this "protection" lasts? If they cut the global sum by the amount they are suggesting there will fewer GPs to serve the local community. By fewer I mean none! This certainly wont help with the rural recruitment crisis.
