RGPAS response to the Scottish GP contract proposals

The Rural GP Association of Scotland (RGPAS) today publishes its response to the Scottish GP contract proposals.  Following much discussion on our members’ email discussion group, RGPAS videoconferences and wider engagement on social media and contract roadshows, we have collated the opportunities and challenges that we believe to exist in the proposals.

We recognise that a new vision for the future of Scottish primary care is vital.  We are keen to collaborate and inform the development of these plans in order that Scotland’s rural communities (at least 18% of the Scottish population) are represented appropriately.

You can read the GP contract proposal at the BMA Scotland website.
