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


Ref:10.41 This was the situation until 1966.and now that CQC is monitoring premises it is possible and solution to GP shortage. Any provider who can provide the service from a approved premises by qualified staff and meet the CQC standars should be allowed to provide the service for a fixed tarrif.The system has been made so complex that they have turned good doctors into medical businessman or adventurers and when they get stuck they blame others. 10 years a doctors were ready to buy into new practice premises built with upto 90% grants from NHS.But senior doctors were togreedy and wanted to run them with salaried doctors so that they keep the notional rent or cost rent for them selves instead of sharing with partners .Now they can face the music, all alone.
