Reports on GP contract used old figures

I read with interest that MPs claim the GP contract has failed to meet expectations.

The Public Accounts Committee and National Audit Office seem to have the same source of outdated, crude and woefully wrong data in terms of the timeframe.

I would be very surprised to meet a single GP who agrees that pay has gone up in the last three years when in reality it has been a very depressing downward roll, only outdone by the steep fall in popularity of this Government.
