New Scottish GP contract will cut workload and make it easier to run practices

The Scottish government has announced plans to deal with problems in recruiting GPs. They are part of a proposed new contract for the profession, which aims to cut workload and make it easier to run practices.

The deal aims to 'reduce workload pressures and re-establish general practice as an attractive career choice', by extending the use of multidisciplinary teams, offering GPs a basic guaranteed income, and radically reducing practices' responsibility for premises.

A £23m fund has been agreed to deliver extra funding to practices that earn more under the new deal, while protecting other practices.

If GPs vote to approve the new contract, it will come into force in April next year.
