Urgent talks with DoH demanded by RCGP and GPC

The GPC and RCGP have demanded urgent talks with the DoH over its plans to punish practices that do not participate in a proposed accreditation scheme.

The RCGP is in the process of devising a practice accreditation scheme. The scheme is intended to be ‘voluntary, developmental and supportive’.  

But health minister Lord Warner said last week that PCTs would be ‘more vigorous with contracts’ of practices failing to take part (GP, 10 November). 

GPC negotiator Dr Richard Vautrey said the minister’s comments were not helpful.
