GP practices miss out on millions in funding from housing developments


Don't blame just Local Authorities. NHSE was given 186k by Redrow in 2011 for support to Strood Practices. It took a complaint to ICO to get a confession that they ahd been given money by the Council and that they had done' informal' consultations with a few Practices - leaving out the inconvenient ones. This is where corruption begins when you have chosen Practices only for monetary allocations. Only in 2017, finally with intervention of the local MP, a million was traced of 106 monies and given to CCG which was acknowledged by CCG in a Locality Meeting. A total of 3 million was identified of unused 106 monies given to NHSE in the last 7 years but never given to GP Surgeries - by Kelly Tolhurst. Now, despite CCG acknowledgement, after 9 months, no Surgery seems to have been given a penny. C'mon NHSE CCG cartel - in 9 months you can give life to a new baby but you are reluctant to breathe a refresher into Practices collapsing due to financial strain. Long live my local banan republic and yest, this is not the fault of local authorities - it is cardigans and corrupt or incompetent NHSE Managers who are responsible but untouchable thanks to the Tory establishment over which even a local MP has no clout.
