Well done, GPC, for forcing MPIG U-turn

I agree with the comments made by Dr Nicholas Down in your story about the MPIG.

Our practice with nine GPs is also heavily dependent on the MPIG and we sincerely hope that the GPC will be able to convince the Department of Health that if the MPIG is to be phased out it will have to be over a very long period - 15 years or more.

In the meantime I would like to congratulate Dr Laurence Buckman and his team for managing to force a Government climbdown. Well done. Be very tough in future negotiations!

Dr Richard de Souza, Maldon, Essex
