Vaccine for hep B lasts 15 years
A salvo of motions castigating local and national Government as well as NHS managers is set to dominate the annual conference of Welsh LMCs.
The conference, taking place today in Usk, Monmouthshire, is the first chance for GPs to air their grievances with the contract since last summer. Key areas for debate include 'closed' and 'full' lists – which some local health boards are failing to recognise – and proposed changes to pension regulations.
Enhanced services will also be in the spotlight as LMCs call for boards to spend money to commission services that actually meet patients' needs.
The LMCs also warn that GMS contract funding should not be plundered for shortfalls in the new pharmacy contract.
Also under attack are the 'ill thought out' recommendations of the Shipman Inquiry.
