Video: BMA to improve sessional GP representation

The GPC is to consult on how local, regional and national committees can be more representative of sessional GPs in the New Year.

GPC negotiator Dr Beth McCarron-Nash said that representation of sessional GPs was one of the GPC's priorities for the coming year.
 
The consultation will gauge 'grassroots opinion' from GPs and help the GPC devise a 'gold standard' for LMCs on how to involve and represent sessional GPs, she added.
 
The GPC's plan follows growing concern that a split is developing within the profession between partners and salaried GPs.
 
Watch Dr McCarron-Nash discussing this issue above.
 
You can also watch Dr Richard Fieldhouse, chief executive of the National Association of Sessional GPs, discussing representation of salaried and locum GPs with Healthcare Republic earlier this year.
