As long as the patients get good care it does not matter whether its is MCP or PACS. Unfortunately many Trusts have been declaring themselves to be in deficit but have set aside huge amounts for "restructuring plans" to buy off CCG`s in deficit and forming ACO. Obviously this is not a level field for GP`s to compete with. Please see HSJ article on same "Department of Health has sent accountancy firms into NHS organisations" - 20 Trusts and CCG`s to ensure their accounting is correct! The corollary is that DOH is asking Trusts to fudge their accounts so as to appear to be in better financial position than they are! "may you live in interesting times" -was never more appropriate for medical politics. Can the editor get the list of 20 CCG`s and Trusts which are being re audited by DOH?
