Special LMCs conference: GPs to be canvassed on handing in undated resignations

GPs at the special LMCs conference will vote on whether the profession should be 'canvassed on their willingness' to submit mass undated resignations, following a last-minute change to wording of a key debate.

GPs will now vote for the GPC to ‘canvass GPs on their willingness to submit undated resignations’, following requests from several LMCs.

The motion’s previous wording, if approved, would have called for ‘undated resignations from the current NHS contracts held by GPs’.

A representative from Buckinghamshire LMC, which supported the motion’s amendment, will propose the motion later today.

Full wording of the updated motion:

BUCKINGHAMSHIRE: That conference instructs GPC that should negotiations with government for a rescue package for general practice not be concluded successfully within 6 months of the end of this conference:

(i) actions that GPs can undertake without breaching their contracts must be identified to the profession

(ii) a ballot of GPs should be considered regarding what work/ services must cease to reduce the workload to ensure safe and sustainable care for patients

(iii) the GPC should canvass GPs on their willingness to submit undated resignations.
