Headline

GPs should be offered £1bn to improve premises and open 8 'til 8, says NHS England-backed report

Comment

In response to the questions about ‘why London’, the Better Health for London report was commissioned by the Mayor's Office. Other NHS regions are free to undertake their own reports if they wish to do so. The NHS in London does face significant challenges - but so do other regions of the UK. A few people asked about resource allocation and whether London received too large a proportion of the NHS budget. The NHS in England operates a need-based system for allocating resources to CCGs based on factors such as age, deprivation and morbidity.
