GPC Wales rejects government criticism of contract

GPC Wales is 'deeply concerned' that a government report on the GMS contract suggests that its increased cost does not represent value for money.

Dr David Bailey, chairman of GPC Wales, said of the National Assembly's Audit Committee report: ‘It fails categorically to recognise that one of the main reasons why the new contract costs increased was because the government failed to listen to the BMA, which warned the government that it had underestimated the amount of work that GPs undertake and the quality of preventative medical care that they provide.'
