Deputy chair, BMA GPs committee. NEW ENTRY

With a reputation for being level headed, considered and intelligent, Dr Vautrey is considered a safe pair of hands and complements the more outspoken GPC chair Laurence Buckman (8).

Dr Vautrey will be keeping a close eye on the details of commissioning to ensure that it does not overburden GPs, that all practices are fairly represented and that the funding arrangements are reasonable.

As a negotiator, the Leeds GP has had particular responsibility for changes to the quality and outcomes framework and GP regulation through revalidation.
