Hospital steps in after 27,000-patient practice closes


Yep, the domino has been triggered. One thing that single-handers and small Practices need to keep in mind is that next year the average PCO list size for a Practice will be a lot higher due to groupings and mergers.and it might just happen that payments for existing QoF points and other indicators that take into account Practice population will fall from ex today 0.8 to 0.5 tomorrow. It could be a double whammy coming with all the other planned cuts. Time to abort mission GP maybe. I'm advertising in the next few weeks,,,,55 next year and independence day ! The hunt is on.
