Which Doctor? Putting patients in control of primary care

Synopsis

A radical new framework to tackle the inequality of primary health care provision has been proposed in this report. The proposals recommend that the majority of NHS funding (£84.4 billion in 2010–11) be distributed on the basis of a patients’ age and postcodes, and that GPs be financially incentivised to set up practices in areas of most need through a ‘patient premium’.
