Practice 'loses £55,000' as CCG cuts £1m enhanced service without warning


The £5 a head money is commissioning money, not part of GMS/ enhanced services. It needs to be evaluated like any other commissioning money. If the GP membership had commissioned another provider to provide a service and they hadn't delivered, I suspect they wouldn't think twice about decommissioning it. At the end of the day the CCG board has a statutory duty to balance it's books. If Pulse had any real journalists these facts would be in the article. This 'angle' of 'the world is against us poor GPs' helps no one.
