The Government said it recognises that GPs are "hard-pressed" and has promised its planned £3.8 billion spend on health and social care will enable doctors to spend more time with patients.
GPs do a vital job which is why we increased their overall budget last year as part of this Government's protection of NHS spending.
We recognise GPs are hard-pressed and as part of ambitious changes to the GP contract we will free them up from unnecessary red tape to devote more time to patients.
This will go hand in hand with a £3.8 billion fund to join up health and social care and support the delivery of integrated services.
