‘The BMA is going to go to war with the Government over pensions. One way they can do that, which is consistent with BMA Council policy, is to advise GPs not to engage with commissioning. If the BMA asks GPs not to engage, then the whole of the health reforms will go phut!'
Wild card: ‘Some of the better GPs may walk away from commissioning and say there's better things to do with my time. That would be a sad thing.'
