PMS practice suffering £400k cuts to be taken over by Virgin Care


In 2011, I was refused information about price per patient to local APMS Providers after having an APMS thrust on me in place of my GMS. The rate given to me was basic GMS rate of 62 pound per patient and my MPIG of 24K was linked to KPIs more stringent than any other APMS Provider had. Didn't change a thing when I got and displayed information through FOI which revealed local APMS Providers were getting up to £250 per patient and also additional min of 67k for KPIs. Their KPIs were kid's stuff as compared to what I was expected to achieve. Corruption thy name is NHSE. Welcome to Medway.
