Practices face £35k funding swings as NHS reviews funding for deprived areas


Dear Anonymous 6:41, Far too simplistic again. Yes there are forces; 1) life forces - ever thought the doctor might actually prefer to live somewhere nicer and not in your deprived area? 2) your market forces - being in a deprived are you won't have experienced the impossibility of property driven market forces, the leafy suburbs have similar recruitment problems because young GPs can't afford to live in the area. Everywhere is suffering recruitment problems. Lift that wool, read these posts again and focus on the real issue. Robbing Peter to pay Paul is diverting your eyes from the real problem.
