What's the point? I've figured it out and will be voting No
GPC negotiator Dr Laurence Buckman says the Carr-Hill formula for the new contact can be absolutely terrifying unless you have a PhD (News report, March 3).
I fortunately have a calculator, an O-level in maths and hopefully some common-sense.
I am voting No, because the contract appears now to rate patients as points more than ever before. Pity the poor 15-44-year-old males (like me) because we are only worth one point each.
Demand not need appears to be the point allocation formula.
Come on GP colleagues out there: there must be a better way than this.
