The BMA and the #healthwhitepaper

Following a whole series of post on the #healathwhitepaper (see “other posts” below), it’s interesting to note that the powerful BMA is doing its best to ignore the proposals contained in the White Paper and focused instead on GP contracts:

We hope there will be few changes to the GP contract as this is a UK contract and commissioning is an England policy. We know that the government wishes to make a few, very significant, changes, but we will be trying to minimise these.

Doesn’t fill me with confidence if the representative body of professionals in whom virtually everything is being entrusted don’t seem that keen.
