Suspended GPs: Advice & Payments
The GPC produced guidance on suspended GPs in 2001. Since then, the legislative frameworks for both GP contracts and the GMC have changed. The guidance attached seeks to provide LMCs and GPs with authoritative guidance on the implications for, and actions required by, a suspended GP performer.
The guidance is set out to cover the wide variety of contractual arrangements available to GPs. This guidance applies to England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland but provisions differ between these nations. The GPC is issuing this guidance subject to revision following discussion between the Scottish GPC and the Scottish Executive Health Department.
