National catch-ups, Thursday 21 March:


Following the unanimous rejection by GPC England of the contract offer on the table from the Government, the officer team has reopened talks about the GMS contract changes for April 2024 onwards, giving the Government until the end of the month to present significant improvements.

A letter has also been sent to the chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, outlining the perilous state of general practice and reminding him of his supportive words when he was chair of the Health and Social Care Select Committee.

Whatever is on the table at that point will be put to you, as BMA members, via a referendum in March.

Only BMA members can have their say in the referendum. This means making sure your details are up to date, and spreading the word to friends and colleagues about joining the BMA. The plan is to open the referendum in early March, so do keep an eye on your emails for the voting link. The email will be from Civica, which is handling the referendum on the BMA’s behalf.
