Video: GPs quiz Lansley on premises and contracts

Watch health secretary Andrew Lansley facing questions on funding for primary care premises and renegotiating the GP contract in a Q&A session at the Commissioning Show 2012 event in London yesterday, in an exclusive GPonline.com video.

The Q&A session came after he warned delegates that the transition to a re-shaped NHS under the Health Act reforms would be difficult, but that he would 'see the reforms through'.

Pictured in the video from left to right are Mr Lansley, NHS Alliance chairman Dr Michael Dixon, and National Association of Primary Care chairman Dr Charles Alessi.
