GP practice taken over by trust to ensure its survival


I agree you will find the cost easily doubles. A friend has taken over 3 practices and guess what .... Ccg have paid 3 times the contract rate each time and paid for refurbishment. We get nothing and for years have saved over 2 million if you add reduced prescribing and referrals . We are low earners and small but our survey ratings all are in the high 96-98 % satisfaction . All the big practices get plush refurbishments and over £150 per patient.,nearly double We work 8-7.30 daily
