Firms prevented from running practices

4th September 2008

A new health bill outlined by Scotland's first minister, Alex Salmond, will include provision to prevent private providers from running GP services in Scotland. He said that one objective of the Bill will be to help ensure that the future of GP services in Scotland remains within the NHS family and firmly rooted in the traditions of general practice. The BMA in Scotland welcomed the measure.
