Scots row over future of PMS

Dr Gavin Brydone has accused GPC Scotland of 'cynically representing' a letter from the Scottish Executive to PMS GPs over the contract's future.

The letter states the 100 PMS practices in Scotland will either become permanent or switch back to GMS and no more pilots will be set up.

Dr Mary Church, Scottish GPC

co-chair, had said the decision was evidence the executive viewed PMS as 'divisive'. But Dr Brydone, a PMS GP in Edinburgh and member of the executive's PMS development team, said: 'The executive were being helpful and the Scottish GPC has kicked them in the face. It is totally the opposite of what they said, mean and intend to do.'
