Substantial gain for me
Dr Phil Brooke, a GP in Newcastle, stands to gain substantially if the proposed formula comes into being.
Along with other inner-city practices Dr Brooke's should see its global sum income rise, mainly because of the new adjustment for the cost of recruitment and retention.
The rise in income will be even greater if the updated Carr-Hill rurality adjustment is not included. Dr Brooke said: 'Given we've had a fall in income because of harder QOF targets and there's no inflation increase, anything that might compensate that would be welcome.'
