One in three UK GPs linked to private firms

Are UK GPs ‘lining their pockets’ with public funds? The latest news in the world of conventional medicine here in the UK reveals one in three general practitioners in clinical commissioning groups, according to a new study.

As stated in the study, one in three GPs who are running new organisations that are about to be given £65bn of the NHS’s budget also help run or hold shares in a private healthcare firm.

But this revelation has fueled concern that such widespread conflicts of interest may threaten patients’ trust in GPs, who they may believe are filling their pockets with public money.

Of 1,179 family doctors on a board of one of the 211 clinical commissioning groups in England, 426 have an interest in for-profit forms. This includes those providing common services on the NHS, such as minor surgery and out-of-hours GP care.

Dr Michael Dixon, the interim president of NHS Clinical Commissioners, which represents 130 of the 211 clinical commissioning groups said boards should be trusted to act properly.

He told The Guardian newspaper: “While it is right that potential conflicts of interest are identified, they can be managed with appropriate openness and transparency; the fear of perceived conflicts of interest must not become a dead-hand stopping new and innovative service development and the ability of CCGs to deliver services in new settings.”
