010220070201BBC Radio 4's new documentary series that gets inside the stories that matter to people and is not afraid to challenge.

2/3. Simon Cox investigates the new contract the Government gave to Britain's GPs. At a stroke it gave doctors an enormous pay rise, killed off the Saturday surgery and led to Primary Care Trusts having to fly in foreign doctors to provide 'out of hours' coverage.

But was this deal a good one for Britain's taxpayers? It was certainly a good one for GPs who now earn on average over £100,000 per year and work fewer hours.

Investigative series, looking at the consequences of the Government' new contract for GPs.
