GP commissioners at odds with BMA

25th May 2011

A survey by the journal Pulse has discovered that GP consortium chairs are opposed to any requirement to include hospital consultants on their boards.

They are said to view it as a serious conflict of interest that would undermine the commissioning process. That view was expressed unanimously by a sample of 20 chairs and chief executives of pathfinder consortia and places GP commissioners at odds with the BMA, the House of Commons Health Committee and Prime Minister David Cameron, who has said he expects a much bigger role for consultants.
