Concern over polyclinic nonsense

23rd May 2008

The Department of Health’s primary care tsar Dr David Colin-Thomé has questioned the attitude of GPs over polyclinics.

Speaking at the Primary Care 2008 Conference in Birmingham, he accused the BMA of ‘trade union spin’ and said concerns over polyclinics were ‘nonsense’. He said that he felt it seemed that the BMA’s job was to “oppose every government policy� and suggested that the new health centres would drive up quality of care, urging GPs to be ambitious and provide more services.
