Global sum set to drop to 51p per patient

Practices will get 'roughly' 51p per patient in their

global sum rather than the

expected 53p, according to the GPC.

The exact figure will be revealed in March, leaving many practices unsure whether they will qualify for MPIG.

GPC joint-deputy chair Dr Hamish Meldrum said the change from census data to registered lists was responsible. 'We did say this might be the effect of using registered lists,' he said.

'It's not that money has been cut, it's just being spread over more patients.'
