Letting practices 'wither' is a complete dereliction of duty


"That 3,000 figure is being given to us by multiple GP practices, who are really feeling financially squeezed at the moment" My point is that they shouldn't be and if they are, something is wrong either with the funding structure or with the work being demanded for that payment given that such practices have always been viable before. Ideal list size per doctor some years ago was 1500. It should be lower than that now given the increasing complexity of work undertaken in primary care.
