A GPC survey of English GPs on the impact of the imposed changes to their contract is launching this week.The survey covers some vitally important areas such as workload, morale, funding and expenses.It also covers the levels of engagement with CCGs, the impact of the changes to the QOF, and GPs' view of the new DESs.The Negotiating Team intends to use the survey results in negotiations with Government to best represent the experiences and opinions of the profession.
I would urge you to to to the link https://www.research.net/s/gpcsurvey001 and spend a few minutes completing the survey. The survey closes at 12pm on Monday 9 September.
The GPC Chairmanhas also written a blog http://bma.org.uk/news-views-analysis/the-bma-blog/2013/august/work-with-us-to-make-general-practice-stronger, covering the above mentioned issues.
The letter to the profession, the survey and blog are also available on the BMA website at www.bma.org.uk/gpc
