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

Comment

'the truth is the rest of the UK is an unproductive mess. Its only London and the south east that has any useful productivity. ' You might want to ask how this has come about when our competitor nations have less unequal economies in their cities. The London centric liberal intelligentsia are too lazy to think about economic development outside of the south-east bubble preferring to scrap whole regions of the formally productive North and hoard NHS resources for themselves. 'The NHS in England operates a need-based system for allocating resources to CCGs based on factors such as age, deprivation and morbidity' That may be so but the weighting is all wrong. You would expect much more funding along the south coast where the elderly are found to retire in large numbers and also the deprived de-industrialised areas where real poverty is found. Instead for some reason unknown to man, a greater proportion of the tax money ends up subsidizing London, a city where billionaires cannot be bothered to pay their workers a living wage.
