Vulnerable practices receiving £10k lump sums as NHS managers 'rush' out funding


In order to get this funding, a practice has to be failing and on its knees, but able to work in a group of at least 30,000 patients with other similar practices, doing 8 till 8, 7 days a week, whilst taking on half a practice pharmacist, a doctor from an Eastern European country, and perhaps a quarter of a physician's associate, as well as have a decrepit building that needs a huge amount of maintenance and investment, but be totally CQC compliant and meeting all targets. I really am not sure why practices have struggled to access this money.
