GP persuades Carr-Hill to end silence

Dr Bill Spiegler has tempted Professor Roy Carr-Hill to end his silence about his controversial formula after contacting him with a message

of support.

Dr Spiegler sent the professor an e-mail saying he suspected his formula was sound but that it had been meddled with by the Department of Health and GP negotiators.

In response, Professor Carr-Hill (inset) blamed census data errors for the massive losses GPs were predicted. He said he had repeatedly pushed the department, to whom he is sub-contracted, to publish the full details of his work.

'I think he's another innocent in all this. It was good of him to reply.'
