ABSTRACT
The article informs that the General Practitioners Committee (GPC) is seeking to hammer out a deal with the National Health Service (NHS) Employers to fund the Agenda for Change pay deal through extra cash within the global sum. The global sum review team, which includes GPC negotiators and NHS Employers, is considering the move as part of a raft of additional factors which could be included in the formula from April 2006. Laurence Buckman, GPC deputy chairman, told the conference that the NHS pay deal was part of the review. He said that the GPC had told the government that GPs would introduce Agenda for Change pay rates for practice-employed staff if the Department of Health funded the extra cost.
