NAGP seeks equality in contract negotiations

By Mindo - 02nd Feb 2017 | 3 views

Both Deputy Billy Kelleher and Deputy Alan Kelly raised the issue of the NAGP fully participating in the talks.

“It is critical that all GPs are equally represented in the contract negotiations,” said Dr Emmet Kerin, NAGP President who addressed the Committee meeting earlier today.

“Parity of process is essential to ensure all GPs have their voice heard and to secure their support for the new contract. Excluding them would only serve to delay this process and therefore delay urgently-needed reform of our health care system.”

The NAGP welcomed the decision of the Committee on Health to write to Minister Simon Harris “asking him to ensure that the NAGP and the IMO have equal status and parity of input and output in the contract negotiation process”.

Dr Liam Glynn, NAGP Chair of Communications, said, “We need a new GP contract which is fit for purpose and which will attract our young, highly trained, GPs back to Ireland. This is critical if we are to facilitate the shift to GP-led Primary Care that is central to the future of healthcare”.
