Should we choose to be a health service body?

NHS body status limits a contact holder to using NHS dispute resolution regulations should a contract dispute occur. Should a GMS contract holder elect not to be an NHS body, the GMS contract holder can choose to use either the NHS dispute procedure or the Law Courts to resolve a dispute.

Becoming an health service body is an option given to the contract holder annually as they renew their contract.

Doncaster LMC currently advises that contract holders should opt out of being a health service body.
