Joining a super-practice provides shelter from the current storm


GP Commissioning rule #1: Shift activity from secondary into primary care because it is so much cheaper to deliver it there. Why is it cheaper? Presumably because the overheads of a small business are so much better controlled than that of a large hospital or NHS Trust. So why are the government intent on delivering primary care from bigger organisations in bigger buildings etc? I suspect that the affordability of primary care will disappear and we will be happy for the work to take place in a hospital. We (the NHS) will also be bankrupt.
