The real fraud


Good points Jaimie. The auditors need to supply real examples. List inflation is not 'fraud'. It is an issue with any capitation-based system of funding and is factored into the global sum. There is also the opposite problem of "list deflation". In my area of London, many people are not registered with a local GP but we still have to deal with them when they become ill.
