MPs order NHS England to show how GPs have been compensated for Capita failure


NHS England has been ordered by influential MPs to show how it has compensated GPs for the botched outsourcing of primary care support services, Pulse reports.

BMA GP committee chair Dr Richard Vautrey said: “It is only right that the Public Accounts Committee be so damning in its assessment of Capita’s running of the PCSE contract. The programme has been run woefully and negatively impacted patients, services and GPs.

Dr Vautrey added: "GPs experienced two years of chaos as a result of this contract. It’s clear that Capita were incentivised by the contract awarded by NHS England to close support offices and cut staff as quickly as possible regardless of the problems that were quickly developing. Prioritising money over services has been very damaging for general practice.”
