Dr Georgina Brown, of Glasgow LMC, said that the board backed down thanks to 'political pressure and mass GP action'.
NHS Glasgow and Clyde had planned to move health visitors out of local practices and into social work teams. But the plan met with thousands of complaint letters from patients, and claims that patients and staff had not been properly consulted.
RCGP Scotland warned that the scheme would result in undetected post-natal depression and worse child protection.
NHS Glasgow has now scrapped the scheme, and is consulting on alternatives.
