A MAJOR crackdown on local medical practices that fix prices could happen this year.

Commerce and Employment minister Kevin Stewart said his department was expecting a report from the regulator in February, scrutinising the fees charged by GPs.

Although Deputy Stewart, pictured, did not know the results of the review, he said he wanted action to ensure more competitive prices for islanders.

He also believed that the current cap on the number of GPs should be reviewed.
