NAGP calls for ‘urgent reversal’ of FEMPI following pay deal

By Dermot - 08th Jun 2017 | 1 views

The NAGP says general practice has suffered “disproportionate funding cuts of up to 38 per cent under FEMPI”

“FEMPI is driving young GPs abroad in search of better terms and conditions,” said Association Chief Executive Mr Chris Goodey.

“Newly qualified doctors have demonstrated their lack of faith in the viability of general practice. For the first time, 10 GP training places have remained unfilled in 2017.

“Training places were oversubscribed before FEMPI was imposed. Almost half of all GP Trainees are seeking better opportunities abroad. Urgent and decisive action must be taken by the Government to address the shortage of GPs in Ireland”.

The Association, which recently held its AGM in Maynooth Co Kildare, insists that without the reversal of FEMPI, along with a new General Medical Service (GMS) contract, “medical graduates will no longer choose a career in general practice”.
