We are all acutely aware of the difficulties facing us in General Practice.
There is uncertainty and a sense of being forced into directions that need far more consideration and collective agreement before anything can be effectively implemented.
In recognition of this, a motion was passed overwhelmingly at LMC conference in May. It committed the GPC to balloting GPs willingness to take industrial action, canvass on what industrial action they would be willing to take and whether they would sign undated resignations - all this if, by the end of August, the Government hadn't come up with any better plan to rescue General Practice than the GP Forward View.
Tower Hamlets LMC invite you to a special meeting to take stock of where we are and where we want to be, discuss the options for the future and look at the implications of a possible ballot and industrial action.
We want to canvass your opinions on the direction of travel and whether you would be willing to take some form of industrial action. You will note that the date of the meeting is deliberately set for after the time limit in the motion.
Please book this date in now, we want to ensure a good turn out so that we can get a meaningful discussion.
