Local GPs block CCG merger due to 'historical debt' issues

Comment

I'm sure this is happening all over the country where any mergers are contemplated - where Primary Care and GP practices in some areas have received historically more money per patient than others in neighbouring areas; the relatively affluent (if we could call it that) areas will never voluntarily merge finances with less "affluent" areas. The system is inequitable and this kind of tinkering helps no-one. Bottom line = More money is needed.
