As mentioned in the newly elected GPC Chairman’s (Dr Chaand Nagpaul) letter to the profession, the GPC is launching a survey today of English GPs on the impact of the imposed changes to their contract. The survey covers some vitally important areas such as workload, morale, funding and expenses. It also covers the levels of engagement with CCGs, the impact of the changes to the QOF, and GPs’ view of the new DESs. The GPC will use the survey results in negotiations with Government to best represent the experiences and opinions of the profession.
We would be very grateful if you could encourage your constituents to spend a few minutes to complete the survey to help GPC represent your views to Government. The survey will close at 12pm on Monday 9 September.
Dr Nagpaul has also written a blog, covering the above mentioned issues, which asks for the profession’s input and views on the contract imposition and how the QOF changes have affected GPs.
The letter to the profession, the survey and blog are available on the BMA website at www.bma.org.uk/gpc .
