65,000-patient super-practice looks to expand across England

Comment

As long as patients have a choice between the super-practice and a small scale operator with it's perks and benefits, - I have no problem with it. As long as my practice is not made to provide a similar range of services and is able to refer our patients for treatment, - we would not even mind if they were sent to Modality or whatever. We would not even mind if they nicked our patients, as long as patient's choice of practice is protected. In fact, I would welcome them into our area and team up in resisting CCG-driven mergers, accountable care organisations, etc as membership in those is supposed to be entirely voluntary. As long as we are not pressured and left alone to run our GMS contract, we will be effective and efficient and make good money for the partners in the process.
