Situation in reverse up here - local hospital trust owned GP company just dumped 5-6000 patients onto hard-pressed and vulnerable neighbouring practices in Blyth when they found their APMS contract and GP recruitment too hard and handed the contract back. Desperately grim.
Votes like this often achieve relatively little. If the CCG officers concerned do fall on their swords (and there is no guarantee that they will) then either there needs to be a group of GPs in the area prepared to take on the poisoned chalices concerned (and agree to behave in a "corporate way" as employees of NHS England) or NHS England imposes external management on the organisation. Either way, local GPs remain in dager of being ridden roughshod over. The whole CCG experiment has been a piece of nonsense from the outset I'm afraid.
