Trusts delay GP IT switch to avoid loss of functionality

A general election next year will 'blight' negotiations with the Government over developments to the contract, the GPC is warning.

GPC negotiator Dr Peter Holden said talks on the review of the quality framework and the Carr-Hill formula were likely to face long delays.
