§ Mr. Michael
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) what representations he has received from general practitioners in Wales regarding the time taken in paperwork caused by the new general practitioner contract system; and what steps he is undertaking to minimise that paperwork;
(2) what representations he has received from general practitioners in Wales regarding the screening and health check work required in the new contract; and if he will list all the suggestions general practitioners have made for improving that system and indicate the response to each suggestion.514W
§ Mr. Grist
Many representations about the new contract were received in the spring and summer of 1989. Most of these covered a number of issues. Identification of those which relate to paperwork, screening and health checks is not now possible, except at disproportionate cost. There have been no recent representations on this issue.
