Premises scheme cancellation
Q: Our six-GP partnership has been planning to build a new medical centre. The PCT had agreed to pay notional rent, but warned us verbally last autumn that financial constraints could compromise the project.
In February, it wrote to us stating its board no longer supported our scheme without giving a reason and refusing further discussion. We owe £100,000 for architect/legal/project management costs and so on. Our requests for the PCT to contribute have been ignored.
Can we appeal against the PCT's decision? Can it ignore communications? Can the BMA provide some help?
