Seventeen-J practice

Seventeen-J practice

A type of GP practice in Scotland which has a standard nationally negotiated agreement, with some local flexibility for GPs to opt-out of providing certain medical services (e.g., additional services) or to opt-in to provide other services (e.g., enhanced services), according to local circumstances.
