13 GP practices to close in single county

Comment

More nonsense. GP practices with small uneconomic lists of patients are liable to close because the income is unsuitable for replacement GPs to apply for these practices when vacancies occur. It would be better if the Commissioner offered large practices money for an additional partner to share work at the main surgery and to staff the small branch surgery. Offering the larger practice nice up to date premises for the branch practice would help. the Board are talking a lot of flannel about providing high quality care. It cannot be provided without investment.
