Headline

Revealed: the effect of the Government's NHS long-term plan on general practice

Comment

It is not clear if the £3.5b - reaching that figure in SIX years’ time - is in excess of any inflationary uplifts, or uplifts to account for increasing demand. If not, it is just more work for the same money, with most of the money being diverted away from core general practice to ‘community teams’ and networks. Can our Great Leaders please clarify these things before publicly offering warm words to the government (I mean you, HSL). Time for a new contract, and a fair deal for General Practice.
