GP funding formula changes to be announced by autumn


The Carr-Hill formula effectively finished my old practice. I resigned before we went down. After a stringent PMS review a practice in a relatively well off area just outside London we were only being paid for 75% of our patients. Deprived no, but very demanding with high expectations. Essentially we had just over 2000 patients who were not funded. Whatever formula is used there should be narrow standard deviations from the mean for those at either end, so that there are no horrendous losers and no massive gainers.
