No. It is open to any practice which cannot come to an agreement with its health board about any aspect of its contract to refer the case to the Scottish ministers under the statutory dispute resolution procedure. In such cases concerning global sums as have been referred, the practices have not claimed that their financial sustainability is threatened.
