LARC Contract Practices will have now received their updated LARC contract. This has been negotiated with Somerset County Council and all the concerns raised we feel have been addressed. We are therefore happy to recommend that practices once they have read and understood the agreement to sign.
Capita LMCs have been inundated with reports on the unsatisfactory service delivered by Capita, these are fed back to the GPC on a fortnightly basis. Following the GPCs vote of no confidence in Capita Dr Chaand Nagpaul GPC Chairman has written to NHSE outlining the seriousness of the concerns asking for specific assurances and sanctions, as well as compensation for practices.
