From GPOnline

Dr Laurence Buckman raised concerns that some CCGs are not holding democratic elections to appoint members to the board with sessional GPs often excluded from electoral processes.

November 14, 2011 — administrator

It's something we hear often. The training received migrating from one clinical system to another was great, but the reference materials left by the team afterwards were either poor or nonexistent.
