    In my area we have a £1.00 per patient prescribing incentive scheme based on reduced spend or coming in under national astro PU.
    This does not take into account deprivation or prevalence, despite the fact that CCGs have prevalence and deprivation taken into account in their budgets.....it would be too complicated to do this for individual practices.
    We need to generate our own referral data and peer review the quality, then reflect the workload better in the funding formula!
