'Boilers on prescription' scheme cut GP visits by 60%


I believe practice involvement has mostly been in identifying potential patients and passing on Gentoo's details. If it really did reduce GP attendances this would be worth it without payment. However I understand that there were very small samples and haven't seen anything to suggest there was a proper control group so reversion to the mean could be a real factor.
