????GPC Ballot of English Practices on Industrial Action - UPDATE

GPC England is balloting GP practices in England as to whether they are prepared to collectively close their practice lists. On Monday 10 July a letter was sent to each practice in England from the Electoral Reform Services explaining how each practice can take part in the indicative ballot. Each practice should have received a unique identifier to log into the ERS website to complete the ballot, as well as a FAQs from the BMA.

If your practice has not received this information, please contact info.gpc@bma.org.uk as soon as possible. We really want to hear whether practices would actually be prepared to undertake this action, so please make sure you discuss as a practice and come to a practice decision. Whether you would or would not take this action, please tell us through this important ballot. We are encouraging and recommending that partners engage salaried and locum GPs in these discussions, as the decision will affect the whole practice not just the partners.

We have received a number of queries about the ballot. Please note the following important points:

It is important that we get as high a turnout as possible so please complete the ballot before the closing date on 10 August.

Best wishes, Dr Richard Vautrey, GPC England chair

 

 

Best wishes
