News in brief: Petitioning for annual inflationary uplifts

Almost 2,400 people have signed a petition on the 10 Downing Street website calling for guaranteed annual inflationary uplifts to GP pay. Practice manager Samuel Forbes, a partner at the Robin Lane Medical Centre in Pudsey, Leeds, launched the petition, which calls for ‘a mechanism that will ensure a full RPI inflation increase is given to PCTs each year in order to guarantee annual inflation increases in GMS and PMS contracts’.
