MPIG-reliant practice faces 25% drop in funding after NHS England backtracks on protection for 'outliers'


Surely this is a simple issue, you provide what is funded for. if there is no money you provide the absolute minimum as required by the contract. If that means increased referrals to A&E etc so be it. You must get patient groups involves so they know the situation. It'll hurt your professional pride but its not as if there is a choice. On the other hand you could just be a martyr and carry on as you are and work for free.
