Rural GPs' Cuts
8:11am 8th April 2014
There is a warning that Cornwall's rural GPs are under threat from cuts.
A government grant to support smaller practices is being phased out this month.
Pirate FM understands at least seven surgeries in the Duchy will be affected, as the Minimum Practice Income Grant goes.
Health campaigner Joe McKenna: "So here we have Cornwall, which has the highest proportion of senior citizens of any county in England, it's about to lose a key part of its rural funding; I just believe that this is a straw that breaks the camel's back.
"The cost of providing health care in a rural area is beyond any shadow of a doubt more expensive than in the major cities and yet the GPs are about to lose a key part of their funding."
