Hospitals ready themselves for primary care takeover


My take home pay after staff, petrol, car, clothes, food, books, indemnity, holiday, tax, pension, holidays, amazon, spotify is 22p. Honestly anonymous at 1.05pm needs to stop muddying the valid argument about our underfunding with nonsense like that. At £2.60 per consultation he/she needs to close the practice and do some locum work. Thus seeing 20,000 patients to bring home £50k would be more like 6,000 or fewer patient per year. Unless he counts each patient contact (letter, script) as £2.60, which is disingenuous and unhelpful.
