The BMA believes the Government has been privately briefing against GPs. It is talking to a range of agencies to see 'how they would face the challenge'. If the campaign is given the go-ahead, it will begin in May.
BMA head of comms Brian Butler said: 'I am confident we will be doing something as there is such a strength of feeling about this.'
The Department of Health (DoH) has responded by saying that any suggestion that the DoH is responsible for anti-GP spin is 'nonsense'.
