College looks forward to building 'constructive' relationship with new Secretary of State

Publication date: 10 July 2018

Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chair of the Royal College of GPs, said: "We look forward to building a constructive relationship with the new Secretary of State and will continue our push for the funding and GP recruitment commitments made by his predecessor to be delivered in full.

"The extra £2.4bn per year promised in the GP Forward View and the state-backed indemnity scheme for GPs are 'red lines' as far as the College is concerned, and must be honoured along with other key commitments. We also need the new Health and Social Care Secretary to ensure that any long term plan for the NHS has high quality general practice at its core to ensure patients get the best possible care from the NHS."
