Ms Robison told the RCGP annual conference that the QOF could be absent from the Scottish contract from next year. A transitional arrangement for quality will be implemented for 2016/17 ahead of the new contract in April 2017.

She said the government's plans to cut the pay of GP registrars in England by 31% were 'appalling' and that there were no plans to do the same in Scotland.

Ms Robison also outlined investment plans for Scottish general practice that she said would 'transform' the service.
