Partnerships could introduce ‘attractive features’ of locum model, says review


Spot on David. Consecutive governments have introduced policies to make partnerships unattractive: pensions for locums, compulsory BMA contract for salaried GPs at GMS practices but not APMS, CQC, etc. This announcement is just to appease the profession. The aim is to force mergers into larger units in preparation for ACOs. How else can you get rid of partnerships which are hugely efficient and popular?
