GP funding shortfall

The Barnet Labour Group have called for an extraordinary Council meeting to discuss the whopping £110 million shortfall in GP funding, despite the Prime Minister's pledge to keep NHS funding rising above inflation. The initial agreement with the Clinical Comkmissioning Group (CCG) was for £470 million to just £380 million.

There are many issues to consider, and there are wider ramifications, which we will go into during the debate. They are very worrying, and I hope all parties will respond positively to our call.
