Over half of GP partners would go salaried 'if offered the right deal'


27 Jun 2016 11:10am Yep. And ACOs/Verticle Integration are all about creating that market. Look at Ribera Salaud in Valencia, and the much lauded US ACO providers. Incidentally FT's can charge up to 49% of their activity as private. It appears that under a PACS model this would include Primary Care, which means existing legislation would allow the privatising two tier system to perpetuate. Now we just need enough of a collapse to rapidly consolidate the system into hospitals which can then rapidly privatise the profit and nationalise/co-pay & insure the costs. Someone who holds onto their equity is about to get very wealthy at our expense.
