Health visitor plans concern

3rd September 2008

Plans to move health visitors out of GP attachments in Scotland and into social work teams have been criticised by the British Medical Association.

The move is proposed by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde but the Scottish General Practitioners Committee say it would break up teams which had served patients well. The BMA also says there has been a lack of appropriate consultation and now the trust has agreed to “pause” the proposals in order to reach agreement with GPs and trades unions.
