Who should control NHS funds?
Ministers are setting out plans to give GPs far more power within the NHS in England. Should doctors control the purse strings?
The government wants doctors to club together in consortia to take charge of £70bn for mental health, hospital and community services.
It would represent a major structural change but some experts have questioned whether the profession has the skills to take on such a responsibility.
Do you work in the medical profession? Should doctors be given more financial power? Will this mean more paperwork and less patient time for GPs? How would you restructure the NHS?
