Superpractices looking to take leadership roles on GP networks across England


NHSE and the Govt have honed their skills to repeatedly do the same stupid things under different names - they called it Darzi Centres, now in our area they plan to 'build' a new Hub Centre from scratch and are coercing GP Surgeries to agree to move into these lest 'Virgin' takes over !! Already shiverrring with fright at the prospect, though we know who is going to get Contracts. It certainly won't be Virgin. GPs working in London for CCGs 2 days a week can get up to 70 k but the PCN Clinical leads are now expected to work for money that even does not provide for the backfill for the Surgery. Of course, we invite and rather challenge CCGs to talk Virgin into taking over. Private providers are not stupid but yes, people working in CCGs with ambitions to flog GPs are welcome to the role.
