ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a General Practitioners Committee (GPC) report which states that with pharmacies given almost twice as many local enhanced service (LES) contracts as five years ago, primary care trusts (PCTs) are increasingly handing GP services to other providers. The reports says that practice earnings from LES contracts fell by 5.5 percent in 2010/11. It is noted that the stagnation seen in practice earnings in 2010/11 is partly due to the cuts to LES contracts.
