The BMA GPC England has rejected the 2024/25 GP contract changes. The contract will now be put to BMA members in a referendum. The referendum cannot prevent the Government from choosing to impose their changes to the contract, but it will send a strong signal as to how the profession feels about a potential third successive contractual imposition by Government and where to collectively go next.

Find out more about the current contract changes here.  

So you can feel fully informed before you vote, the BMA GPC are holding a series of webinars and will publish a set of iterative FAQs so you can read and reflect with your practice colleagues. FAQs will be updated the more feedback is received. Practice Managers are welcome to attend the webinars.

What to expect:

  • A presentation from GPC England Officers outlining the context of the 2024/25 contract and what it means both for your practice, and you as a GP. A summary of next steps and the choice BMA GP members will need to make in the referendum
  • A roadmap of what the months ahead may look like  
  • The opportunity to have your questions answered – please send your questions in advance to
