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


I'm a bit confused: Carr-Hill was about the funding of general practice (and MPIG was supposed to prevent the massive losses of practice income which would have destabalised practices suffering savage cuts) and not the PCO (at the time PCT) income for commissioning services for patients. From the article, it might appear that the new formula to replace Carr-Hill will be applied to the CCG budgets - not the individual practices. Which is it? DOI - live in Bedfordshire - which is already still about 10% below "fair shares": will the new formula decrease the inadequate CCG income still further?
