CCG facing biggest deficit blames ‘GP variation’ in cost-saving measures


Nicholson's challenge is a fallacy and QIPP is one size fits all . The only political 'intelligence' here is exploiting the word 'quality' to trade quietly for underlying cost saving. GP variation naturally occurs in different practices in different areas with different demography , needs , deprivation and limitations. Only to support and invest back on practices is logical to improve longer term outcomes and hence achieve the real 'saving'.
