NHS cancer bonuses 'are abhorrent, risky and misguided' - Telegraph

Ministers have been urged to ban schemes which pay GPs financial bonuses for reducing referrals to hospital – including cases of suspected cancer.

The calls come amid growing criticism of the NHS initiatives, which doctors have described as “abhorrent, risky and misguided.”

Labour’s new shadow health secretary Heidi Alexander last night called on ministers to “review the impact and extent” of these schemes “as a matter of urgency”.


WTF is the NHS thinking? Rather, I guess it's clear what they're thinking.
