GPs in Merseyside are preparing to take their PCT to court in an effort to hold it to contracts that overpaid them by a total of £1.2 million.

The dispute between GPs and South Sefton PCT over the trust's error in calculating global sum and MPIG monies has escalated after the trust

withheld money from September payments.

The PCT has insisted GPs must repay up to £48,000 each in overpayments and started to reclaim the money without GPs' consent.

But GPs have resisted, claiming they told the trust about the mistake at the start of the financial year and it ignored them.

Pulse understands GPs have now banded together and have authorised the LMC to hire legal representation to fight the

PCT in court.
