Somerset LMC Weekly Update Friday 28th September

Date sent: Friday 28 September 2018

Sent to all Somerset GPs and Practice Managers          This and previous updates are available here

NHS Digital Investment in General Practice report: The committee received the newly published Investment in General Practice report by NHS Digital. It was noted that 2017/18 had seen £10.2bn invested in general practice (excluding drug reimbursement & GPs in A&E) in England, which represented 8.1% of the NHS budget and therefore fell £3.6bn short of the BMA’s target level of investment (11% of NHS budget). The GPC has expressed serious concern that the proportion of the NHS budget going to general practice in England, excluding the reimbursement of drugs, had fallen from 9.6% in 2005/06 to 7.4% in 2013/14 and was now 8.1% in 2017/18.

Recruitment/Speed Dating Evening 17th October Dillington House: Are you an GP or GP Trainee looking for the right practice / employer to meet your career aspirations? If you are thinking about partnership, salaried or retainer posts but not sure where to begin and aren't sure what your next steps are then help is at hand and your questions can be answered by attending this unique event where practices from across the county and GPs and GP Trainees can come together and be introduced to each to other to explore options and hear about the innovations that are happening in Somerset Primary Care. Please Book online

BMJ Careers Fair: We have secured a stand at this fair for the GP in Somerset campaign and will be sharing all the good work and info with delegates in the hope that a few may decide to come and live and work in the South West, if your practice has a current or future vacancy please complete this template for us to share.

Sessional GPs e-newsletter – UK: The September issue of the sessional GP newsletter includes an article on the updated FAQs for state- backed indemnity for GPs by Matt Mayer, Sessional GPC exec and Mark Sanford-Wood, GPC exec. The newsletter also includes an article by Zoe Norris on pay uplifts and DDRB, including a template letter for salaried GPs to take to their practice. Read the newsletter
