GP: General Practitioner;6/20/2008, p8
The article reports that general practitioners (GPs) have rebuked the failure of the government to invest in their premises at the Local Medical Committees (LMCs) conference in London, England. According to John Doyle of Surrey LMC, practices need premises that are fit for purpose if primary care trusts (PCTs) are to shift care from the secondary of the primary sector. It is noted that the lack of investment could lead to the failure of practice-based commissioning and some practices.
