The Scottish Government, with agreement of the Scottish General Practitioners’ Committee of the BMA, have commissioned Deloitte to review general practice funding, pay and expenses.
The remit of the review is to gather and analyse general practice earnings and expenses data, and consult with expert stakeholders to provide evidence for future mechanisms for the delivery of funding to general practice.
The Review will cost £95,260 (excluding VAT) and the relevant information will be published at an appropriate time following the successful conclusion of GMS contract negotiations.
