Practices with 2-3 GPs have the lowest expenses, NHS analysis shows


DOI - Work for a average (7k) size practice. All well and good if you can control for quality. But that's easier said than done. If they are generally cheap because either their clinical outcomes or their compliance is poor, then its not good value, just good price. Big practices tend to perform better on compliance and governance. Smaller practices tend to do better on continuity, and have lower admissions as a result, and have less fall through the cracks.
