GPs invited to apply for £50m pilot to extend access and choice of practice

Comment

£50m is about £1 per patient across the country. My practice, like some of the others posting here, found that implementing the full 30 min per 1000 patients (which no-one can tell me how it was arrived at) was a loss making exercise at considerably more than a quid a head. Given the IT support, contractual legalities, and other overheads associated with this crackpot idea, I reckon it will end up in the long grass before too long.
