GP contract poll results

To inform the Scottish GP Committee's decision on whether to implement the proposed new GMS contract in Scotland, a poll of the profession was held to establish whether the contract had the backing of GPs in Scotland.

The poll was held between 7 December and 4 January and was open to all GPs working in Scotland, including trainees and locums. The poll asked the question: 'Do you wish to see the proposed new Scottish GMS contract implemented?.'

The overall results and the results broken down by type of GP are shown in the table below.
