Letters: Drop in status will force us into salaried roles

So, there we have it. One of the chief architects of the new GMS contract, and a man who along with then GPC chairman Dr John Chisholm championed its benefits, tells us that 88 per cent of our work can be done by other professionals.

The implications are obvious. An increasing pressure on our professional standing, with fewer GPs needed, constant tinkering with our contract and increased competition leading to falling remuneration, more of us will forced into dwindling numbers of salaried posts.

Nice to see that Dr Fradd still retains that overarching zeal to champion the interests of his colleagues.
