HC Deb 23 April 1998 vol 310 c684W
Mr. Flight

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what representations he has received from GPs on the effect on the incomes of GPs of participating in primary care groups; and if he will make a statement. [39287]

Mr. Milburn

We have regular meetings with all primary health care representative bodies, and the income of general practitioners participating in primary care groups is just one among a number of issues discussed. These issues will continue to be discussed, and guidance on various financial matters will be issued in the summer. These professional bodies are supportive of this Government's initiative to develop a new National Health Service, modern and dependable.
