Joining a super-practice provides shelter from the current storm


I ran a small grouping. OK and some economies and protected small practices. But these HUGE large area practices are quite different. It must draw the attention of the Competition and Markets Authority, since it imposes a monopoly in an area. The success of General Practice as against hospitals has been because GPs were in slight competition and self employed so kept our costs down. This will be lost down the track. This will be a disaster for patient with nowhere else to go.
