The Scottish contract doesn’t work for millennial GPs

Comment

I can see both sides of the argument but taking it from another angle what is best for patient care and most efficient for the NHS? A GP partner working 6+ sessions a week and knowing his/her patients offers more continuity and fewer investigations, referrals and possibly admissions than a 4 session portfolio GP. If Scotland wanted to encourage partnership I don't blame them if (big if) they are using this measure.
