  • I am sorry to disagree with the comment above. I work in Tower Hamlets in one of the most deprived boroughs in the country. Our projected practice funding will be cut by just under 10% in this year alone- worse next year- and across the borough funding to practices will be cut by about 1.7million. The historical underfunding of inner city practices which hardly makes any provision for the proven extra workload due to population deprivation - high turnover, younger but sicker patients , increased psychological morbidity, high proportion of ethnic minority patients etc mean that inequalities in health will increase further . It is heartbreaking to say that my practice will most likely have to close as we cannot survive unless the doctors literally work for nothing. I have already given 25 yrs of service to my patients and have put up with the inequalities in funding due to the wonderful staff and patients I have had the privilege to serve. But I cannot live on nothing and my patients will lose access to one of the highest quality practices in the country. No exaggeration. This is what the public do not yet know.
