GP concerns over network DES will form ‘basis’ of talks with NHSE, says BMA


For me it is largely irrelevant what the BMA manage to 'negotiate'. NHSE have shown their hand, and practice sustainability and development doesn't feature in it. Even if we manage to secure a 'less bad than it might have been' settlement, the message is that PCNs will ultimately be subverted to further disinvest and disempower General practice. We engage with them, at any level, at our peril.
