Reaction to the new GP contract for 2020/21

Comment

'These extra staff will in turn be offering expanded services, including regular health checks for people living in care homes, action to boost vaccination uptake, earlier cancer detection, and better support for people with learning disabilities.' Simon Stevens appears to confirm that the extra staff will be tied up with additional services rather than supporting the practices. At least we will not be subsidising them but it does not suggest that they will do anything to reduce pressures on core GP work
