Practice notional rent could be halved by change to 'alternative use' guidance


This is a bit of a scare story. It won't happen largely because you'll have to take on the developers of new build surgeries who have costed in notional rent to build purpose built premises. Legally NHS England would not have a leg to stand on. NHS England is obsessed with federations, it is using ever tactic to try and get practices to merge into 'manageable units'; allowing for more easy central control. All you'd need is for a handful of practices to convert to residential property and you'd be left with the collapse of primary care in those areas.
