§ 56. Sir H. Lucas-Tooth
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services why he is requiring general practitioners to attend a minimum number of post graduate sessions per annum before they are entitled to seniority payments.
§ Mr. Ennals
This was agreed in principle with the representatives of the profession during the discussions on the new system of remuneration. Despite recent doubts expressed on behalf of the profession, I am convinced that implementation of the original agreement will be to the advantage of general practitioners and patients alike.
