'Vicious cycle' of workload pressures facing GPs in deprived areas

Comment

Is shit regardless of deprives or not deprived..... we’re a very mixed population across 2 sites and consultation rates generally are sky rocketing regardless of patient numbers. Forgetting deprivation; Carr Hill means we are not paid AT ALL for more than 3000 of our not so deprived patients -( true vs weighted list size is shocking!) but they damn well present enough with complex medical problems and have to be cared for -so both ends of the situation are grim!
