The former head of the Royal College of GPs has said proposals to pay doctors to diagnose dementia are "an intellectual and ethical travesty".
Dr Iona Spence's comments were echoed by Surrey GP Dr Martin Brunet, who told healthcare magazine Pulse the idea "creates a major conflict of interest that is frankly unethical".
According to the Daily Telegraph, GPs in some parts of the country could be paid as much as £200 per diagnosis under the plan.
