Whole town looking at employed model of general practice


A couple of issues: - No one seems to be able to answer the question of whether an FT running a PACS can also charge patients privately in the way that it can for 49% of its normal capacity. If so, PACS is clearly better than MCP as it means you can earn more to pay for all the resources you need to exist. - Competition and Merger Authority will probably need consulting on this as it could result in a monopoly provision in an area. Expect this one to come up a lot more as we progress down the ACO/MCP route.
