£10m community diabetes programme boosts checks rate by 60%


10,000000/11000= £909 per diabetic patient checked. To recap- A GP gets only average 115 pounds per patient per year- figures published mentioned £136 average for England Certainly, this 10million contract was an effective use of NHS resources and before the tigers spring to my throat with arguments about long term diabetes/diabesity implications and costs, could I please ask - what other positions do the members running the Federations hold.
