Smash and grab: how PMS funding is being redistributed


Only in Medway if your list goes up year to year by 20 patients, the weighted list falls by 200. You can't do redistribution of any funding in our area. Lack of transparency is astounding and HSCIC refuse to log calls from GPs saying it has to through NHSE. This after having told you a year before that your data was being manipulated at the local level. Good to hear that PMS funding is being redistributed. unfortunately, there is no way you can redistribute the excessive funding given to privileged Practices under GMS contracts - examples of premises rents to the tune of 186000 per year!
