Say No to new work or it's back to Red Book days

Dr Russell Walshaw has warned the new GMS contract will be no different from the Red Book unless GPs learn to say No to new work.

Dr Walshaw, medical secretary of Northern Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire LMCs, told a seminar of local GPs it would not be a 'work-sensitive contract' unless they refused work. 'You will have no control over your work, you lose any flexibility and the PCT will control your life,' he said.

'If the PCT is unwilling or unable to resource services you already provide, give three months' notice of your intention to cease providing the service.'
