Letters: LESs being enforced for local PMS practices

You will be interested to know that local PMS contracts are being amended and a series of enhanced services are being made compulsory including ethnicity/alcohol/osteoporosis.

Several PMS practices have voiced their objections to this compulsory involvement even if we are to be paid on the national tariff for these services.

Ethnicity monitoring we feel adds very little to healthcare and is resented by a vocal minority of patients.

Also, every enhanced service cannot be relevant for each GP area.
