Only 9p per patient of global sum uplift is new funding


My biggest concern remains in this funding mechanism through GP networks and practically representing an end to funding practices individually . As I wrote in my recent long comment ( Is GP networking a Trojan Horse?) , I cannot see members of networks could happily agree how to divide these new funding and resources ( pharmacist, physiotherapist , paramedic etc in the coming years) fairly without dispute and potential in-fighting . Yes , the option of merging into a super-practice remains and of course , in the expense of continuity of care .
