Partners faced with £800,000 potential liability following practice closure


Anonymous | NHS Manager05 Aug 2016 10:41am This is exactly where we are heading. But if we are to carry all the risk, then we must have more control on the reward - ie co-payment. At present we must fight with our hands tied. The activity is boundless, the payment is limited, and the options for managing cost and profit are tiny. If we're to take risk like a real market, we must be free to set price as a real market. The alternative is that GPs will leave like a real market.
