NHS Employers responds to today's statement by the British Medical Association about its consultation to gather doctors' views on the Department of Health's ongoing consultation on changes to the GP contract.

A spokesperson for the NHS Employers organisation said:
"The British Medical Association has provided a lengthy and detailed response to the GP contract consultation, which both the Department of Health and NHS Employers will need time to consider properly.
"After the GP contract consultation ends on 26th February Ministers will take into account the representations that have been made during the consultation and then decide how to proceed.

"We have consistently and publically stated that the package of proposals on which the Department of Health are now consulting is consistent with where NHS Employers tried to take negotiations with the GPC last year. In those negotiations we sought to reach agreement on changes that significantly improve patient care and in particular, get more practices to deliver what the better practices already achieve."
