LMC writes to GMC with concerns over £95 per patient co-commissioning plans

Comment

Practices need to be incentivised, especially if significant cost savings can be made on prescribing drugs. Why would a Practice 'switch' medication that saves the NHS 600K and be offered £150 for doing so? I would sooner see real incentives for practices where cost savings are reinvested in resources it does not have to be cash. If our practice was saving 600k I would want 200k to be reinvested in our operating costs which would make a real difference without the need for clinical and patient safety concerns
