CCG admits to spending £2.5m earmarked for GP practices on propping up A&E


Exactly same in my local area. I asked what's happened to the £5/head money and I was told it's a money CCG is not required to give personally to each practice and instead they are planning to use the money for wider service. Except there are no planned out existing service to help manage this named GP responsibility. By the way, the CCG had just discovered they are >£1m in the red as secondary care "increased" their activity. Any guesses as to where this money is disappearing?
