Practices 'who do not get along' being forced into CCGs' preferred networks


Human nature : it is hard to get four/five partners within a single practice to agree easily on an issue , what makes you think it is easy for so many GPs to agree on more complex issues in a massive network . Furthermore , do not forget the Trilemma Theory : For integration, sovereignty and democracy , you can only have two but never all three of them. The political reality was that politicians did not believe in funding individual practices ideology from day 1 . They always think that is too expensive. To put in new money/investment, they wanted to be ascertained that there would be substantial structural changes .
