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


There are some populations that no longer make business sense to serve - it time get out of those areas. It's up to NHSE then to find someone else who will do it for the monies available. GP's don't have automatic right of protection but NHSE must provide the NHS health care as a statutory responsibility. Its their problem not the practice's. This is a seven year plan so plenty of time to restructure.
