RCGP calls for Hancock to reconsider GP at Hand endorsement

Comment

The issue isn’t with the tech. The issue is that it is a proxy for segregating cheap patients from expensive ones. We should follow the Swedish model where ACG scores determine each individual patient’s capitated primary care budget - it has led to increased primary care setting up in areas that serve the most complex patients and would render the Gp At Hand financial model obsolete.
