Video: Hundreds march in east London over GP funding threat
Hundreds of patients, residents, GPs and practice staff marched for four hours across the London borough of Tower Hamlets Thursday demanding action over the threat to practices from funding cuts.
Five practices in the borough and a further 17 in neighbouring Hackney and Newham are at risk of closure because of the withdrawal of MPIG.
The protest was organised by GPs and supporters from the Save Our Surgeries group launched by the Jubilee Street Practice, which has said it will close in October without a funding solution.
Medeconomics has teamed up with specialist medical accountants to produce individual forecasts of practice financial performance as the MPIG is phased out.
