11,000 patients forced to find new GP as four more practices close


APMS Providers will now be given double the sums per patient to take on these patients. Why couldn't struggling Practices get better funding and were allowed to close? It's all about backhanders and corruption at a massive scale in NHS. Stupid Managers with MBAs from Universities that don't accept a single black student in 5 years couldn't be expected to do better. Time to wake up and sack the whole lot responsible for Contracts to APMS or liquidate APMS altogether. When Practices can't manage, support them with proper funding or if they still have to close, channel the same level of funding to Practices taking on new patients as you would to APMS Providers. That might be a better start. Well, there won't be backhanders then though you still can cheat by giving to Practices with CCG and LMC activists only.
