The latest guidance and advice is released from NICE...
In June 2022, the Government announced its intention to work towards the statutory medical examiner system commencing from April 2023, recognising the need for all relevant government departments to be ready and aligned to enable successful implementation.
Responding to the publication of the new GP contract for 2023/24, Dr Kieran Sharrock, acting chair of GPC England at the BMA, said:
“It’s extremely frustrating to see a second GP contract imposition forced on the profession, especially one that does absolutely nothing to improve what is fast-becoming an irreparable situation for practices and their patients up and down the country.
“GPC England approached these contract negotiations in the spirit of collaboration, hopeful that common ground could be found, with the profession, finally, given the support it needs. Instead, the profession was roundly insulted by an inadequate first offer - which the Committee had no choice but to reject - and later subjected to a tick-box exercise meeting with the Secretary of State, who flatly refused to supply additional help to practices.
Many of you will have seen the announcement regarding the forthcoming Industrial Action that our Junior Doctor colleagues will be taking between Monday 13th- Thursday 16th March.
