More Worries Over GP Funding

According to Healthcare Republic
45 per cent of GPs feel they are being pushed too quickly into consortia, and that 55 per cent think their autonomy and independent contractor status are at risk

Part of the reason why GPs are reticent is that GPs may be handed debts of PCTs. The Department of Health is apparently either clueless or are hiding what will happen about the issue at the moment.

Although there are some GPs who are enthusiastic about GP commissioning, most seem to regard the plans as a "poisoned challis".
