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

Comment

The idea that CCGs is deprived areas will gain from those in more affluent ones is all very well. However in Somerset, bound to be considered a nice place to live (although practices are having trouble recruiting) we have pockets of deprivation equal to anything elsewhere. My present practice is in the drugs, alcohol and mental health centre of town for example. The nearest I have experienced to it was working in Thamesmead in the 1980s. My point is that CCG areas are not homogeneous.
