All practices in England to be invited to bid for £1bn premises funding


What about the only Practice in UK that is being given rent below what it was in 1995 despite increase in patient list size by 1200 patients and increase in services and premises use.It is the only Practice that has been asked to prove that the meeting room is in full time use day after day and been denied retn for a manger's office which is in full time use and houses the EMIS server. A Practice that has had to wait 3 years for first rent valuation and then deposit 3 PREMS to be able to get first valuation a copy of which cannot be had as it is an official secret. Marlowe Park Medical Centre awaits your response Mr Hunt. Please ensure that money meant for premises is not gobbled up by NHSE as in case of £86000 pounds given by Redrow through Medway Council last year for Strood Practices to NHSE which has never seen the light of day. NHSE has refused to give information even to ICO about this money and ICO has accepted this in a very docile manner making you think that ICO as a govt run agency is hand in hand with NHSE another govt creation. Lack of transparency is your main problem so deal with it before shelling out billions.
