Wales gets enhanced services deal

GPs in Wales will not have to fight their primary care organisation for enhanced services cash after the Welsh GPC struck a deal for services to be nationally negotiated.

Dr Andrew Dearden, GPC Wales chair, said local health boards were only six months old and still finding their feet. 'It was felt that this year it would be helpful for GPC Wales to avoid having to have 22 different negotiations,' he said.

'As a result Welsh GPs won't have to fight for the money as they do in England.'

The funding would be guaranteed by the Welsh Assembly for 'a year or so', he added. A total of £16.4 million was available for Welsh enhanced services this year.
