LMCs support call for minimum funding of £200 per patient per year


'll never understand where these figures come from. Is there an apartheid policy run by NHSE? Why is my Practice being paid around £90 per patient while averages quote from 136 to 141 per patient for England. Is it the principle of Us and Them with Us being the areas populated by middle class and rich people and the us being the areas where you have struggling middle class and council housing. Or is NHSE pursuing the policy - as in today's headlines of Blacks being paid less than white counterparts in white collared jobs in the City? I know this is controversial and unpleasant stuff but one needs to look at these factors too because when tomorrow if this utopian dream of £200 actually comes true, then my Practice will be getting 120 while all others get 200 based on whimsical attitudes prevalent up there.
