#News

What happened at the last Labour conference (#Lab14) before May's election? GP senior news reporter Neil Roberts (@Neil_GPmag) was there with BMA deputy chairman Dr Kailash Chand (@KailashChandOBE) and spoke exclusively to shadow health secretary Andy Burnham (@andyburnhammp). What Labour gained with its pledge of 8,000 GPs, it seemed to lose with its insistence that they should be employed by hospitals in integrated care organisations. @Neil_GP mag will be reporting from #Con14 in Birmingham next week.
