LMC Committee's Response to Winter Funding Plan

Publication date: November 2021

The LMC Committee met on Tuesday 2 November when they discussed the Winter Access Fund plan and the BMA's subsequent proposals for actions to both convince NHSEI and Government of the need to withdraw the plan and work with the BMA on a genuine support package for practices.

Committee members were asked to vote on the proposed actions individually and the results were as follows:

1. Rejecting the NHS Winter Plan

2. Asking the LMC to disengage

3. Pausing ARRS recruitment

4. Disengaging from the PCN DES

5. Advocating refusal to engage pay transparency

6. Advocating refusal to engage with COVID 19 exemption requirements

7. Submitting undated resignations from PCN DES

8. I have confidence in GPC

The LMC is holding a virtual Q&A session by MS Teams on Thursday 4 November from 19.00 to 20.30 to focus on this issue. This will be an important opportunity to have your say and get answers to your questions. GPs and practice managers should have received an email with an invitation to the event - if you haven't received it please contact us.
