Networks to receive 45p per patient less through DES for providing extended hours


This is needlessly complex and some of the arguments for are threadbare in the extreme. It is double if not triple counting a small amount "added to the Global Sum" and is a typical political method of saying you have been paid but in reality haven't. Now were I a refusenik I now know that to get ANY of the money 100% of the patients have to be covered. That gives me a tremendous leverage with the Network. It could amount to "Cover my patients for free" and we all get £1:45p but refuse and you lose everything and I lose nothing. Not that I would suggest any such. COI a refusenik but left in 2016.
