Every GP partner knows the main problems of partnership. Full liability and poor funding. All my junior colleagues are happy to be partners if the global sum is increased enough to reflect our workload and allow the business to have limited liability.If we calculate the funding per patient it hardly covers 1 visit per patient per year!
This should be published for general public to read. It is not just the government who does not value us, it is also the general public. We get the slack for the poor government policies.
The few practices which came out as inadequate, ticked the right boxes, used the right language CQC wants to hear and next inspection they were all rated good!!!
Misleading title. This is the federated model which many areas are opting for!
My practice is in the same situation.
We are owed about £65000 by NHSE. Pension contributions for salaried doctors who have left general practice are still being deducted from us. Also rent arrears not paid.
Charge all your registered patients £100 a year for 3 twenty minute appointments in a year with a GP and 3 with nurse or nurse practitioner or a HCA. Anything over and above that will be extra charge. This will end all our funding problems. Home visit should have an additional charge.
