No support for Darzi from LMCs

The Darzi review will be 'positive' for GPs, RCGP chairman Dr Steve Field has claimed.

'We believe we've had a real impact on the paper,' he told LMC delegates.

'When it started back in October, general practice was seen to be a problem. But evidence from healthcare around the world has shown that the NHS works because of general practice, not in spite of it,' said Dr Field.

His words had little impact on his audience, however. The conference overwhelmingly backed motions that it had no confidence in Lord Darzi, his review, or his independence from a 'predetermined outcome'.
