§ 73 and 74. Mr. K. Robinson
asked the Minister of Health (1) what aspects of the general practitioner service, its future rôle, system of payment, level of remuneration, practice expenses, conditions of service, and capital provision, are currently under examination by the Review Body, by himself, by a departmental working party or by any other body for which he is responsible; and if he will delineate the precise scope of each form of inquiry;
(2) whether the Review Body has undertaken to reconsider in the immediate future the remuneration of all doctors or only of general practitioners.
§ Mr. Barber
It is for the Review Body to keep the remuneration both of hospital doctors and of general practitioners under review but no claims are at present before it.
All aspects of general medical practice other than the quantum of remuneration are within the scope of the Working Party which my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I are setting up in agreement with the profession.
