GP numbers are declining faster in areas with low-income patients


Mr Hunt, in deprived areas as in Medway, half the Carr Hill Formula is taken into account with Deprivation factors completely ignored and payment made only for weighted list sizes. The Deprivation payment totals are listed on Open Exeter statements but these are 'not understood' by NHSE who claim that NHS Digital has confirmed that these are correct. On the other hand, NHS Digital refuses to talk to GPs but under FOI request denies having any information regarding GP Payments !!! Do we have only liars employed at the top from NHSE/ CCGs and NHS Digital - is that prime criteria for selection of this elite?
