Ninth GP surgery set to close in single town


Coming soon to a town near you.Things don't look so rosy right along the South Coast. Brighton has its problems, but has a relatively young population, a big teaching hospital, nice place to live, and more than its share of funding. Practice closures in Folkestone, Hastings, Worthing, Portsmouth ... Impossible to run a practice on £150/patient gross (globalsum+QOF+LCS+GPFV) without working for free. No wonder they are all going to the wall. All you can eat General Practice buffet 12 months for the cost of 3 tanks of petrol.
